Subject: [PATCH] hfsplus: fix compiler warning on PowerPC

Commit a99b7069aab8fc3fb4f26d15795dc280b52e38b1 ("hfsplus: Fix
undefined __divdi3 in hfsplus_init_header_node()") introduced do_div() to
xattr.c and the warning below too.

As Geert remarked: "tmp" is "loff_t" which is "__kernel_loff_t", which
is "long long", i.e. signed, while include/asm-generic/div64.h compares
its type with "uint64_t". As inode sizes are positive, it should be safe
to change the type of "tmp" to "u64".
