Subject[PATCH 2.6.32 37/62] hrtimer: Allow concurrent hrtimer_start() for self restarting timers
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit 5de2755c8c8b3a6b8414870e2c284914a2b42e4d upstream.

Because we drop cpu_base->lock around calling hrtimer::function, it is
possible for hrtimer_start() to come in between and enqueue the timer.

If hrtimer::function then returns HRTIMER_RESTART we'll hit the BUG_ON
because HRTIMER_STATE_ENQUEUED will be set.

Since the above is a perfectly valid scenario, remove the BUG_ON and
make the enqueue_hrtimer() call conditional on the timer not being
enqueued already.

NOTE: in that concurrent scenario its entirely common for both sites
to want to modify the hrtimer, since hrtimers don't provide
serialization themselves be sure to provide some such that the
hrtimer::function and the hrtimer_start() caller don't both try and
fudge the expiration state at the same time.

To that effect, add a WARN when someone tries to forward an already
enqueued timer, the most common way to change the expiry of self
restarting timers. Ideally we'd put the WARN in everything modifying
the expiry but most of that is inlines and we don't need the bloat.
