[NET]: Fix packet timestamping.
I've found the problem in general. It affects any 64-bit architecture. The problem occurs when you change the system time. Suppose that when you boot your system clock is forward by a day. This gets recorded down in skb_tv_base. You then wind the clock back by a day. From that point onwards the offset will be negative which essentially overflows the 32-bit variables they're stored in. In fact, why don't we just store the real time stamp in those 32-bit variables? After all, we're not going to overflow for quite a while yet. When we do overflow, we'll need a better solution of course. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <firstname.lastname@example.org>
