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


From: Anna-Maria Gleixner <anna-ma...@linutronix.de>

commit 48d0c9becc7f3c66874c100c126459a9da0fdced upstream.

The POSIX specification defines that relative CLOCK_REALTIME timers are not
affected by clock modifications. Those timers have to use CLOCK_MONOTONIC
to ensure POSIX compliance.

The introduction of the additional HRTIMER_MODE_PINNED mode broke this
requirement for pinned timers.

There is no user space visible impact because user space timers are not
using pinned mode, but for consistency reasons this needs to be fixed.

Check whether the mode has the HRTIMER_MODE_REL bit set instead of
comparing with HRTIMER_MODE_ABS.
