Subject: mm/page-writeback.c: use div64_ul() for u64-by-unsigned-long divide

The two variables 'numerator' and 'denominator', though they are declared
as long, they should actually be unsigned long (according to the
implementation of the fprop_fraction_percpu() function)

And do_div() does a 64-by-32 division, while the divisor 'denominator' is
unsigned long, thus 64-bit on 64-bit platforms.  Hence the proper function
to call is div64_ul().
