This is wrong: div64_s64 does not modify its argument like do_div(), but
it returns the result instead. You also don't want to divide by a 64-bit
value when the second argument is a small constant.

I think the correct way should be

       s64 rtt_avg = div_s64(res->ftm.rtt_avg * 100, 6666);

If you know that the value is positive, using unsigned types
and div_u64() would be slightly faster.
