[rrd-developers] PATCH: rrd_diff() and negative COUNTER/DERIVE datasource values

rrd_diff() does not produce correct result when 2 values are negative or
have different
signs. Some of the vendors (N*****k A*******e) have mibs where counter
values can be negative.
Also DERIVE datasource must work correctly even when both measurements are

Attached small patch against latest stable rrdtool to rrd_diff.c fixes the
case when 2 values are negative. Fixing the last case does not
have much practical value.

As a side question i wonder why not to convert function parameters to double
using strtod() and
then return the difference ?
