Subject: [PATCH] codel: use u16 field instead of 31bits for rec_inv_sqrt
commit 6ff272c9ad65eda219cd975b9da2dbc31cc812ee upstream.
David pointed out gcc might generate poor code with 31bit fields.
Using u16 is more than enough and permits a better code output.
Also make the code intent more readable using constants, fixed point arithmetic
not being trivial for everybody.
