[PATCH 4.9 54/63] b43: Fix error in cordic routine




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

------------------

From: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 8ea3819c0bbef57a51d8abe579e211033e861677 upstream.

The cordic routine for calculating sines and cosines that was added in
commit 6f98e62a9f1b ("b43: update cordic code to match current specs")
contains an error whereby a quantity declared u32 can in fact go negative.

This problem was detected by Priit Laes who is switching b43 to use the
routine in the library functions of the kernel.

Fixes: 986504540306 ("b43: make cordic common (LP-PHY and N-PHY need it)")
