Subject[PATCH 3.2 57/59] timerfd: Protect the might cancel mechanism proper
3.2.92-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit 1e38da300e1e395a15048b0af1e5305bd91402f6 upstream.

The handling of the might_cancel queueing is not properly protected, so
parallel operations on the file descriptor can race with each other and
lead to list corruptions or use after free.

Protect the context for these operations with a seperate lock.

The wait queue lock cannot be reused for this because that would create a
lock inversion scenario vs. the cancel lock. Replacing might_cancel with an
atomic (atomic_t or atomic bit) does not help either because it still can
race vs. the actual list operation.
