shmem: fix division by zero
Yuri Tikhonov [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:40:11 +0000 (14:40 -0700)]
Fix a division by zero which we have in shmem_truncate_range() and
shmem_unuse_inode() when using big PAGE_SIZE values (e.g.  256kB on
ppc44x).

With 256kB PAGE_SIZE, the ENTRIES_PER_PAGEPAGE constant becomes too large
(0x1.0000.0000) on a 32-bit kernel, so this patch just changes its type
from 'unsigned long' to 'unsigned long long'.

Hugh: reverted its unsigned long longs in shmem_truncate_range() and
shmem_getpage(): the pagecache index cannot be more than an unsigned long,
so the divisions by zero occurred in unreached code.  It's a pity we need
any ULL arithmetic here, but I found no pretty way to avoid it.
