Subject[PATCH RT 5/8] timer-fd: Prevent live lock
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

If hrtimer_try_to_cancel() requires a retry, then depending on the
priority setting te retry loop might prevent timer callback completion
on RT. Prevent that by waiting for completion on RT, no change for a
non RT kernel.
