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

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

From: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com>

commit 8f294b5a139ee4b75e890ad5b443c93d1e558a8b upstream.

The settimeofday01 test in the LTP testsuite effectively does

        gettimeofday(current time);
        settimeofday(Jan 1, 1970 + 100 seconds);
        settimeofday(current time);

This test causes a stack trace to be displayed on the console during the
setting of timeofday to Jan 1, 1970 + 100 seconds:

When we change the system time to a low value like this, the value of
timekeeper->offs_real will be a negative value.

It seems that the WARN occurs because an hrtimer has been started in the time
between the releasing of the timekeeper lock and the IPI call (via a call to
on_each_cpu) in clock_was_set() in the do_settimeofday() code.  The end result
is that a REALTIME_CLOCK timer has been added with softexpires = expires =
KTIME_MAX.  The hrtimer_interrupt() fires/is called and the loop at
kernel/hrtimer.c:1289 is executed.  In this loop the code subtracts the
clock base's offset (which was set to timekeeper->offs_real in
do_settimeofday()) from the current hrtimer_cpu_base->expiry value (which
was KTIME_MAX):

	KTIME_MAX - (a negative value) = overflow

A simple check for an overflow can resolve this problem.  Using KTIME_MAX
instead of the overflow value will result in the hrtimer function being run,
and the reprogramming of the timer after that.
