RTC: Prevents a division by zero in kernel code.
This patch prevents a user space program from calling the RTC_IRQP_SET ioctl with a negative value of frequency. Also, if this call is make with a zero value of frequency, there would be a division by zero in the kernel code. [jstultz: Also initialize irq_freq to 1 to catch other divbyzero issues] CC: Alessandro Zummo <a.zummo@towertech.it> CC: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Marcelo Roberto Jimenez <mroberto@cpti.cetuc.puc-rio.br> Signed-off-by: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org>
