isofs uses a 'char' variable to load the number of years since
1900 for an inode timestamp. On architectures that use a signed
char type by default, this results in an invalid date for
anything beyond 2027.

This adds a cast to 'u8' for the year number, which should extend
the shelf life of the file system until 2155.

This should be backported to all kernels that might still be
in use by that date.
