It is a warning fix - I was passing the wrong type of variable to
strict_strtoul(), though on most architectures int and long are the same
in memory so the behaviour before and after the change is identical.
The fix is to pass a temporary variable of the correct type in and then
assign the result to pop_time rather than passing pop_time in directly.
