time: Workaround gcc loop optimization that causes 64bit div errors

Early 4.3 versions of gcc apparently aggressively optimize the raw
time accumulation loop, replacing it with a divide.

On 32bit systems, this causes the following link errors:
undefined reference to `__umoddi3'
undefined reference to `__udivdi3'

The gcc issue has been fixed in 4.4 and greater.

This patch replaces the accumulation loop with a do_div, as suggested
by Linus.
