Commit Message

This commit contains 3 modifies:

1.Convert the type of jiffies_scan_wait to "unsigned long".

2.Use READ/WRITE_ONCE() for accessing "jiffies_scan_wait".

3.Fix the possible wrong memory scanning period. If you set a large
memory scanning period like blow, then the "secs" variable will be
non-zero, however the value of "jiffies_scan_wait" will be zero.

    echo "scan=0x10000000" > /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak

It is because the type of the msecs_to_jiffies()'s parameter is
"unsigned int", and the "secs * 1000" is larger than its max value.
This in turn leads a unexpected jiffies_scan_wait, maybe zero. We
corret it by replacing kstrtoul() with kstrtouint(), and check the
msecs to prevent it larger than UINT_MAX.
