This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    staging: comedi: dt3000: Fix rounding up of timer divisor

to my staging git tree which can be found at
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/staging.git
in the staging-linus branch.

The patch will show up in the next release of the linux-next tree
(usually sometime within the next 24 hours during the week.)

The patch will hopefully also be merged in Linus's tree for the
next -rc kernel release.

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.

Subject: staging: comedi: dt3000: Fix rounding up of timer divisor

`dt3k_ns_to_timer()` determines the prescaler and divisor to use to
produce a desired timing period.  It is influenced by a rounding mode
and can round the divisor up, down, or to the nearest value.  However,
the code for rounding up currently does the same as rounding down!  Fix
ir by using the `DIV_ROUND_UP()` macro to calculate the divisor when
rounding up.

Also, change the types of the `divider`, `base` and `prescale` variables
from `int` to `unsigned int` to avoid mixing signed and unsigned types
in the calculations.

Also fix a typo in a nearby comment: "improvment" => "improvement".
