Subject: [PATCH] twcal_jiffie should be unsigned long, not int

Hi David

While browsing include/net/inet_timewait_sock.h, I found this buggy definition 
of twcal_jiffie.

int         twcal_jiffie;

I wonder how inet_twdr_twcal_tick() can really works on x86_64

This seems quite an old bug, it was there before introduction of 
inet_timewait_death_row made by Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo.

[PATCH] twcal_jiffie should be unsigned long, not int
