Subject: [patch 3/3] drivers/net/appletalk: use time_before, time_before_eq, etc

From: Julia Lawall <julia@...u.dk>

The functions time_before, time_before_eq, time_after, and time_after_eq
are more robust for comparing jiffies against other values.

A simplified version of the semantic patch making this change is as follows:
(http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/)

// <smpl>
@ change_compare_np @
expression E;
@@

(
- jiffies <= E
+ time_before_eq(jiffies,E)
|
- jiffies >= E
+ time_after_eq(jiffies,E)
|
- jiffies < E
+ time_before(jiffies,E)
|
- jiffies > E
+ time_after(jiffies,E)
)
