Subject[PATCHv7 12/33] posix-timers: Make timer_settime() time namespace aware
From: Andrei Vagin <>

Wire timer_settime() syscall into time namespace virtualization.

sys_timer_settime() calls the ktime->timer_set() callback. Right now,
common_timer_set() is the only implementation for the callback.

There user-supplied timer's value is converted from timespec64 to ktime
and then timens_ktime_to_host() can be used to convert namespace's time
to the host time.

Inside a time namespace kernel's time differ on a fixed offset from
a user-supplied, but only absolute values (TIMER_ABSTIME) must
be converted.
