Subject: [PATCH net-next 2/2] sysctl: range checking in do_proc_dointvec_ms_jiffies_conv

When (integer) sysctl values are expressed in ms and have to be
represented internally as jiffies. The msecs_to_jiffies function
returns an unsigned long, which gets assigned to the integer.
This patch prevents the value to be assigned if bigger than
INT_MAX, done in a similar way as in cba9f3 ("Range checking in
do_proc_dointvec_(userhz_)jiffies_conv").
