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

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

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com>

commit 80d767d770fd9c697e434fd080c2db7b5c60c6dd upstream.

When compiling for the IA-64 ski emulator, HZ is set to 32 because the
emulation is slow and we don't want to waste too many cycles processing
timers. Alpha also has an option to set HZ to 32.

This causes integer underflow in
kernel/time/jiffies.c:
kernel/time/jiffies.c:66:2: warning: large integer implicitly truncated to unsigned type [-Woverflow]
  .mult  = NSEC_PER_JIFFY << JIFFIES_SHIFT, /* details above */
  ^

This patch reduces the JIFFIES_SHIFT value to avoid the overflow.
