tcp: Fix integer-overflow in TCP vegas
[ Upstream commit 1f74e613ded11517db90b2bd57e9464d9e0fb161 ] In vegas we do a multiplication of the cwnd and the rtt. This may overflow and thus their result is stored in a u64. However, we first need to cast the cwnd so that actually 64-bit arithmetic is done. Then, we need to do do_div to allow this to be used on 32-bit arches.
