Hi dev,

Here's a patch to fix a jiffies wrapping problem.  On 32bit systems
with current kernels jiffies wrap 5 minutes after booting.  Any tunnels
that are brought up before the wrap are affected.  The time values in
/proc/net/ipsec_spi become bogus (very large) after the wrap. 

I went through and found any other jiffies calculations I thought needed
work while there,
