[ Upstream commit 043e337f555e610ad8237fd23522d97c968d72b9 ]

In Kernel 4.15.0+, Netem does not work properly.

Netem setup:

tc qdisc add dev h1-eth0 root handle 1: netem delay 10ms 2ms

Result:

PING 172.16.101.2 (172.16.101.2) 56(84) bytes of data.

Patch:

(rnd % (2 * sigma)) - sigma was overflowing s32. After applying the
patch, I found following output which is desirable.
