[PATCH] Represent dirty_*_centisecs as jiffies internally
Make that the internal values for: /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs /proc/sys/vm/dirty_expire_centisecs are stored as jiffies instead of centiseconds. Let the sysctl interface do the conversions with full precision using clock_t_to_jiffies, instead of doing overflow-sensitive on-the-fly conversions every time the values are used. Cons: apparent precision loss if HZ is not a multiple of 100, because of conversion back and forth. This is a common problem for all sysctl values that use proc_dointvec_userhz_jiffies. (There is only one other in-tree use, in net/core/neighbour.c.)
