Eh, IIRC, signed vs unsigned division has implications for rounding
towards zero or not, but I doubt that the round trip time average (RTT
avg) should ever be negative.  General rule of thumb for C is to keep
arithmetic signed (even when working with non zero values), so rather
than make the literal (6666) a unsigned long, I agree with your change
to keep the division signed as well.  Thanks for the fix.
