We could use (UINTMAX_MAX / 2) instead, would that work?

3.4.2

It is defined to INT64_MAX (i.e., 9223372036854775807LL).  The problem
is that EMACS_SECS returns a time_t, a 32-bit value, whereas
INTMAX_MAX is a 64-bit value.

You don't show what is 'secs' in this snippet.  The key to avoiding
the warning is to have both arguments of 'min' be 64-bit values.
