Subject: [PATCH 2/2] timer: use local_bh_enable_force_wake() in
 del_timer_sync()

From: Yong Zhang <yong.zhang0@...il.com>
Subject: [PATCH 2/2] timer: use local_bh_enable_force_wake() in del_timer_sync()

raw_local_irq_save()/raw_local_irq_restore() is also not suitable
here because lockdep will report "possible reason: unannotated irqs-off"

To cure this issue, use local_bh_enable_force_wake() here in case of
we have pending softirq left during this time.
