lib/checksum.c: use 32-bit arithmetic consistently
The use of 'unsigned long' variables in the 32-bit part of do_csum() is confusing at best, and potentially broken for long input on 64-bit machines. This changes the code to use 'unsigned int' instead, which makes the code behave in the same (correct) way on both 32 and 64 bit machines.
