[PATCH 4/5] trace-cmd: Use unsigned values in Hsieh's trace_hash fast hash function




Signed int values were being used where the original code used uint32_t types:

  http://www.azillionmonkeys.com/qed/hash.html

Right shifting negative int values has implementation-defined and left shifting
has undefined behavior.

On my platform (x86_64) right shifting was doing sign extension and filling
high bits with 1s, which is different than the original algorithm.
