    Subject[PATCH V2] futex: set FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT during demux for FUTEX_WAIT
    The FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT flag was not getting set, causing the restart_block to
    restart futex_wait() without a timeout after a signal.

    Commit b41277dc7a18ee332d in 2.6.38 introduced the regression by accidentally
    removing the the FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT assignment from futex_wait() during the setup
    of the restart block. It makes more sense to set the flag earlier during
    do_futex() where the other flags are set, although futex_wait is the only user
    of FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT as it is the only op using a relative timeout (an
    unfortunately preexisting condition).


    V2: Added references to commit message.
