Subject[PATCH 4.4 56/78] backlight: pwm_bl: Fix overflow condition
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Derek Basehore <dbasehore@chromium.org>


[ Upstream commit 5d0c49acebc9488e37db95f1d4a55644e545ffe7 ]

This fixes an overflow condition that can happen with high max
brightness and period values in compute_duty_cycle. This fixes it by
using a 64 bit variable for computing the duty cycle.
