*Really* RTS crash due to bad coercion.

Previous commit only moved the coercion mistake to a different
architecture (i.e. underflow could still occur on platforms where Int
is smaller than CInt). This patch should definitively deal with all
possible combinations.

-- In case 1, the value of maxPollTimeout will be the maxBound of Int.
-- In case 2, the value of maxPollTimeout will be the maxBound of CInt,

-- c_pollLoop recursing if the provided timeout is larger.
-- In case 3, "fromIntegral (maxBound :: CInt) :: Int" wil result in a

-- accept values bigger than maxBound :: Int and CInt is larger than Int,
-- there is no problem converting Int to CInt for the c_poll call.
