Subject[PATCH RT 17/22] alarmtimer: Prevent live lock in alarm_cancel()
Date
From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

4.9.115-rt94-rc1 stable review patch.
If you have any objection to the inclusion of this patch, let me know.

If alarm_try_to_cancel() requires a retry, then depending on the
priority setting the retry loop might prevent timer callback completion
on RT. Prevent that by waiting for completion on RT, no change for a
non RT kernel.
