Subject[PATCH 3.2 057/106] alarmtimer: Prevent overflow of relative timers
3.2.93-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit f4781e76f90df7aec400635d73ea4c35ee1d4765 upstream.

Andrey reported a alartimer related RCU stall while fuzzing the kernel with
syzkaller.

The reason for this is an overflow in ktime_add() which brings the
resulting time into negative space and causes immediate expiry of the
timer. The following rearm with a small interval does not bring the timer
back into positive space due to the same issue.

This results in a permanent firing alarmtimer which hogs the CPU.

Use ktime_add_safe() instead which detects the overflow and clamps the
result to KTIME_SEC_MAX.
