Wait, patch 1 just added that line?

Should patch 1 not add it and this
patch go without
this removal? :)

+               wdagain_nsec = clocksource_cyc2ns(delta, watchdog-
>mult, watchdog->shift);
+               if (wdagain_nsec < 0 || wdagain_nsec >
WATCHDOG_MAX_SKEW) {
+                       wderr_nsec = wdagain_nsec;
+                       if (nretries++ < max_read_retries)
+                               goto retry;
+               }

Given that clocksource_cyc2ns uses unsigned multiplication
followed by a right shift, do we need to test for <0?
