Subject: [PATCH] time: Validate the usec before covert to nsec in do_adjtimex

When covert the usec to nsec, it will multiple 1000, it maybe
overflow and lead an undefined behavior.

For example, users may input an negative tv_usec values when
call adjtimex syscall, then multiple 1000 maybe overflow it
to a positive and legal number.

So, we should validate the usec before coverted it to nsec.
