net/mlx5: Adjust clock overflow work period
When driver converts HW timestamp to wall clock time it subtracts the last saved cycle counter from the HW timestamp and converts the difference to nanoseconds. The conversion is done by multiplying the cycles difference with the clock multiplier value as a first step and therefore the cycles difference should be small enough so that the multiplication product doesn't exceed 64bit. The overflow handling routine is in charge of updating the last saved cycle counter in driver and it is called periodically using kernel delayed workqueue. The delay period for this work is calculated using the max HW cycle counter value (a 41 bit mask) as a base which doesn't take the 64bit limit into account so the delay period may be incorrect and too long to prevent a large difference between the HW counter and the last saved counter in SW. This change adjusts the work period for the HW clock overflow work by taking the minimum between the previous value and the quotient of max u64 value and the clock multiplier value.
