[PATCH][block-next] block: iolatency: fix comparison of unsigned int max_depth with a (u64)-1

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The comparison max_depth != (u64)-1 is always true as max_depth is a
unsigned int and so its upper 32 bits are 0. Fix this by using the
a comparison of (unsigned int)-1 to ensure like types are compared.
Note, if max_depth is changed to a wider type then this will need
fixing again.
