Type of local variable days has been changed recently to unsigned,
but it can take negative values. As a result it works incorrectly for some
arguments. The patch fixes it.

The problem has been detected using proposed semantic patch
scripts/coccinelle/tests/unsigned_lesser_than_zero.cocci [1].

Yeah, I was not planning to send that patch finally because it had more
issues than expected. What you did seems good, I'll have a closer look
when I'm back from vacations. My current internet access is too limited
to be able to pull/push anything with git.
