net/mlx4_en: fix overflow in mlx4_en_init_timestamp()

The cited commit makes a great job of finding optimal shift/multiplier
values assuming a 10 seconds wrap around, but forgot to change the
overflow_period computation.

It overflows in cyclecounter_cyc2ns(), and the final result is 804 ms,
which is silly.

Lets simply use 5 seconds, no need to recompute this, given how it is
supposed to work.

Later, we will use a timer instead of a work queue, since the new RX
allocation schem will no longer need mlx4_en_recover_from_oom() and the
service_task firing every 250 ms.
