Subject[PATCH] mailbox: cancel timer before starting it
Date
If the txdone is done by polling, it is possible for msg_submit() to start
the timer while txdone_hrtimer() callback is running. If the timer needs
recheduling, it could already be enqueued by the time hrtimer_forward_now()
is called, leading hrtimer to loudly complain.

WARNING: CPU: 3 PID: 74 at kernel/time/hrtimer.c:932 hrtimer_forward+0xc4/0x110
CPU: 3 PID: 74 Comm: kworker/u8:1 Not tainted 5.9.0-rc2-00236-gd3520067d01c-dirty #5
Hardware name: Libre Computer AML-S805X-AC (DT)

[...]

Canceling the timer before starting it ensure that the timer callback is
not running when the timer is started, solving this race condition.
