ipc: msg, make msgrcv work with LONG_MIN

When LONG_MIN is passed to msgrcv, one would expect to recieve any
message.  But convert_mode does *msgtyp = -*msgtyp and -LONG_MIN is
undefined.  In particular, with my gcc -LONG_MIN produces -LONG_MIN
again.

So handle this case properly by assigning LONG_MAX to *msgtyp if
LONG_MIN was specified as msgtyp to msgrcv.

This code:
  long msg[] = { 100, 200 };
  int m = msgget(IPC_PRIVATE, IPC_CREAT | 0644);
  msgsnd(m, &msg, sizeof(msg), 0);
  msgrcv(m, &msg, sizeof(msg), LONG_MIN, 0);

produces currently nothing:

  msgget(IPC_PRIVATE, IPC_CREAT|0644)     = 65538
  msgsnd(65538, {100, "\310\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"}, 16, 0) = 0
  msgrcv(65538, ...

Except a UBSAN warning:

  UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in ipc/msg.c:745:13
  negation of -9223372036854775808 cannot be represented in type 'long int':

With the patch, I see what I expect:

  msgget(IPC_PRIVATE, IPC_CREAT|0644)     = 0
  msgsnd(0, {100, "\310\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"}, 16, 0) = 0
  msgrcv(0, {100, "\310\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"}, 16, -9223372036854775808, 0) = 16
