Subject[ 67/69] ipc/sem.c: update sem_otime for all operations
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Manfred Spraul <manfred@colorfullife.com>

commit 0e8c665699e953fa58dc1b0b0d09e5dce7343cc7 upstream.

In commit 0a2b9d4c7967 ("ipc/sem.c: move wake_up_process out of the
spinlock section"), the update of semaphore's sem_otime(last semop time)
was moved to one central position (do_smart_update).

But since do_smart_update() is only called for operations that modify
the array, this means that wait-for-zero semops do not update sem_otime
anymore.

The fix is simple:
Non-alter operations must update sem_otime.
