Subject[patch 8/8] hrtimer: Avoid more SMP function calls in clock_was_set()
There are more indicators whether the SMP function calls on clock_was_set()
can be avoided:

- When the remote CPU is currently handling hrtimer_interrupt(). In
that case the remote CPU will update offsets and reevaluate the timer
bases before reprogramming anyway, so nothing to do.

By unconditionally updating the offsets the following checks are possible:

- When the offset update already happened on the remote CPU then the
remote update attempt will yield the same seqeuence number and no
IPI is required.

- After updating it can be checked whether the first expiring timer in
the affected clock bases moves before the first expiring (softirq)
timer of the CPU. If that's not the case then sending the IPI is not
required.
