commit 4cd273bb91b3001f623f516ec726c49754571b1a upstream.

(not in Linus's tree now, but in nf.git + linux-next.git already.)

age is signed integer, so result can be negative when the timestamps
have a large delta.  In this case we want to discard the entry.

Instead of using age >= 2 || age < 0, just make it unsigned.
