Subject[PATCH v2] add function spin_event_timeout()
Date
The function spin_event_timeout() takes a condition and timeout value
(in jiffies) as parameters. It spins until either the condition is true
or the timeout expires. It returns non-zero if the condition is true,
zero otherwise.

+ * zero if the @timeout elapsed. If both occurs (e.g. the loop was
