Subject[patch 1/2] Validate itimer timeval from userspace

According to the specification the timeval must be validated and
an errorcode -EINVAL returned in case the timeval is not in canonical
form. Before the hrtimer merge this was silently ignored by the
timeval to jiffies conversion. The validation is done inside
do_setitimer so all callers are catched.
