Yes, I think its ok to do so.

Like pointed out in the other thread, there are two races:

 - sched_rt_runtime() going to RUNTIME_INF, and that will be handled
   properly by sched_rt_runtime_exceeded()

 - sched_rt_runtime() going to !RUNTIME_INF, and here we can miss an
   accounting cycle, but I don't think that is something to worry too
   much about.
