Subject[patch 20/96] timerfd: add flags check
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Davide Libenzi <davidel@xmailserver.org>

commit 610d18f4128ebbd88845d0fc60cce67b49af881e upstream.

As requested by Michael, add a missing check for valid flags in
timerfd_settime(), and make it return EINVAL in case some extra bits are
set.

Michael said:
If this is to be any use to userland apps that want to check flag
support (perhaps it is too late already), then the sooner we get it
into the kernel the better: 2.6.29 would be good; earlier stables as
well would be even better.
