Subject[PATCH] posix-cpu-timers: Ensure set_process_cpu_timer is always evaluated
Date
Commit a9445e47d897 ("posix-cpu-timers: Make set_process_cpu_timer()
more robust") moved the check into the 'if' statement. Unfortunately,
it did so on the right side of an && which means that it may get short
circuited and never evaluated. This is easily reproduced with:

$ cat loop.c
void main() {
struct rlimit res;
/* set the CPU time limit */
getrlimit(RLIMIT_CPU,&res);
res.rlim_cur = 2;
res.rlim_max = 2;
setrlimit(RLIMIT_CPU,&res);

while (1);
}

Which will hang forever instead of being killed. Fix this by pulling the
evaluation out of the if statement but checking the return value instead.
