Subject[PATCH 4.9 7/9] kthread_worker: split code for canceling the delayed work timer
Date
From: Petr Mladek <pmladek@suse.com>

commit 34b3d5344719d14fd2185b2d9459b3abcb8cf9d8 upstream.

Patch series "kthread_worker: Fix race between kthread_mod_delayed_work()
and kthread_cancel_delayed_work_sync()".

This patchset fixes the race between kthread_mod_delayed_work() and
kthread_cancel_delayed_work_sync() including proper return value
handling.

This patch (of 2):

Simple code refactoring as a preparation step for fixing a race between
kthread_mod_delayed_work() and kthread_cancel_delayed_work_sync().

It does not modify the existing behavior.
