[001/140] bridge: fdb cleanup runs too often

From: Greg KH

2.6.33-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: stephen hemminger <shemminger@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 25442e06d20aaba7d7b16438078a562b3e4cf19b ]

It is common in end-node, non STP bridges to set forwarding
delay to zero; which causes the forwarding database cleanup
to run every clock tick. Change to run only as soon as needed
or at next ageing timer interval which ever is sooner.

Use round_jiffies_up macro rather than attempting round up
by changing value.
