[PATCH 4.4 10/45] acpi, nfit, libnvdimm: fix interleave set cookie calculation (64-bit comparison)

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@xxxxxxxxx>

commit b03b99a329a14b7302f37c3ea6da3848db41c8c5 upstream.

While reviewing the -stable patch for commit 86ef58a4e35e "nfit,
libnvdimm: fix interleave set cookie calculation" Ben noted:

    "This is returning an int, thus it's effectively doing a 32-bit
     comparison and not the 64-bit comparison you say is needed."

Update the compare operation to be immune to this integer demotion problem.
