Fix the case in which timer has expired and we refresh it without
sending the notification

Hm, this seems to me like a new feature. With this change, IDLETIMER
is sending notifications once the timer becomes active again.

Regarding this TODO, you can adapt this code snippet for this:

unsigned long newtime = jiffies + extra_jiffies;

/* Only update the timeout if the new timeout is at
 * least HZ jiffies from the old timeout. Need del_timer
 * for race avoidance (may already be dying).
 */
if (newtime - ct->timeout.expires >= HZ)
        mod_timer_pending(&ct->timeout, newtime);

We're using it in nf_conntrack.

This should come in a separate patch.
