sched/cputime: Do not scale when utime == 0

commit 5a8e01f8fa51f5cbce8f37acc050eb2319d12956 upstream.

scale_stime() silently assumes that stime < rtime, otherwise
when stime == rtime and both values are big enough (operations
on them do not fit in 32 bits), the resulting scaling stime can
be bigger than rtime. In consequence utime = rtime - stime
results in negative value.

User space visible symptoms of the bug are overflowed TIME
values on ps/top, for example:

 $ ps aux | grep rcu
 root         8  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        S    12:42   0:00 [rcuc/0]
 root         9  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        S    12:42   0:00 [rcub/0]
 root        10 62422329  0.0  0     0 ?        R    12:42 21114581:37 [rcu_preempt]
 root        11  0.1  0.0      0     0 ?        S    12:42   0:02 [rcuop/0]
 root        12 62422329  0.0  0     0 ?        S    12:42 21114581:35 [rcuop/1]
 root        10 62422329  0.0  0     0 ?        R    12:42 21114581:37 [rcu_preempt]

or overflowed utime values read directly from /proc/$PID/stat
