I just took it from CFQ. BTW, what's the harm here in truncating unsigned
long to int? Anyway for our variables we are not expecting any value 
bigger than unsigned int and if it is, we expect to truncate it?

Again these are the same values CFQ was using.  Do you have a better upper
limit in mind? Until and unless there is strong objection to UINT_MAX, we
can stick to what CFQ has been doing so far.
