3.5.7.7 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com>

commit e6c42c295e071dd74a66b5a9fcf4f44049888ed8 upstream.

The trinity fuzzer triggered a task_struct reference leak via
clock_nanosleep with CPU_TIMERs. do_cpu_nanosleep() calls
posic_cpu_timer_create(), but misses a corresponding
posix_cpu_timer_del() which leads to the task_struct reference leak.
