Subject[PATCH v9 11/12] kthread: Allow to modify delayed kthread work
Date
There are situations when we need to modify the delay of a delayed kthread
work. For example, when the work depends on an event and the initial delay
means a timeout. Then we want to queue the work immediately when the event
happens.

This patch implements kthread_mod_delayed_work() as inspired workqueues.
It cancels the timer, removes the work from any worker list and queues it
again with the given timeout.

A very special case is when the work is being canceled at the same time.
It might happen because of the regular kthread_cancel_delayed_work_sync()
or by another kthread_mod_delayed_work(). In this case, we do nothing and
let the other operation win. This should not normally happen as the caller
is supposed to synchronize these operations a reasonable way.
