Subject[RFC 4/7] sched: don't check for active hrtimer after adding it
Date
hrtimer_start*() family never fails to enqueue a hrtimer to a clock-base. The
only special case is when the hrtimer was in past. If it is getting enqueued to
local CPUs's clock-base, we raise a softirq and exit, else we handle that on
next interrupt on remote CPU.

At several places in the kernel, we try to make sure if hrtimer was added
properly or not by calling hrtimer_active(), like:

hrtimer_start(timer, expires, mode);
if (hrtimer_active(timer)) {
/* Added successfully */
} else {
/* Was added in the past */
}

As hrtimer_start*() never fails, hrtimer_active() is guaranteed to return '1'.
So, there is no point calling hrtimer_active().

Also this is done in while loop at several places, which isn't required anymore.

This patch updates sched core to get this fixed.
