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

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

From: Xiangyu Lu <luxiangyu at huawei.com>

commit 80bb3ef109ff40a7593d9481c17de9bbc4d7c0e2 upstream.

In big-endian systems, "%1" get the most significant part of the value, cause the instruction to get the wrong result.

When viewing ftrace record in big-endian ARM systems, we found that
the timestamp errors:

swapper-0   [001] 1325.970000:   0:120:R ==> [001]    16:120:R events/1
events/1-16 [001] 1325.970000:   16:120:S ==> [001]    0:120:R swapper
swapper-0   [000] 1325.1000000:  0:120:R   + [000]    15:120:R events/0
swapper-0   [000] 1325.1000000:  0:120:R ==> [000]    15:120:R events/0
swapper-0   [000] 1326.030000:   0:120:R   + [000]  1150:120:R sshd
swapper-0   [000] 1326.030000:   0:120:R ==> [000]  1150:120:R sshd

When viewed ftrace records, it will call the do_div(n, base) function, which achieved arch/arm/include/asm/div64.h in. When n = 10000000, base = 1000000, in do_div(n, base) will execute "umull %Q0, %R0, %1, %Q2".
