Subject: [PATCH v2 3/3] serial: core: Update uart_poll_timeout() function to
 return unsigned long

From: VAMSHI GAJJELA <vamshigajjela@...gle.com>

The function uart_fifo_timeout() returns an unsigned long value, which is
the number of jiffies. Therefore, the function uart_poll_timeout() has been
modified to use an unsigned long type for timeout values instead of an int
and to avoid truncation.
The return type of the function uart_poll_timeout() has also been changed
from int to unsigned long to be consistent with the type of timeout values.

Signed-off-by: VAMSHI GAJJELA <vamshigajjela@...gle.com>

v2:
- unsigned long instead of unsigned int
- added () after function name in short log
- updated description
