timers: Fix timer_migration interface which accepts any number as input

Poornima Nayek reported:

| Timer migration interface /proc/sys/kernel/timer_migration in
| 2.6.30-git9 accepts any numerical value as input.
|
| Steps to reproduce:
| 1. echo -6666666 > /proc/sys/kernel/timer_migration
| 2. cat /proc/sys/kernel/timer_migration
| -6666666
|
| 1. echo 44444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444 > /proc/sys/kernel/timer_migration
| 2. cat /proc/sys/kernel/timer_migration
| -1357789412
|
| Expected behavior: Should 'echo: write error: Invalid argument' while
| setting any value other then 0 & 1

Restrict valid values to 0 and 1.
