Subject: [PATCH 3.13 121/259] alarmtimer: Fix bug where relative alarm timers were treated as absolute

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

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

From: John Stultz <john.stultz@...aro.org>

commit 16927776ae757d0d132bdbfabbfe2c498342bd59 upstream.

Sharvil noticed with the posix timer_settime interface, using the
CLOCK_REALTIME_ALARM or CLOCK_BOOTTIME_ALARM clockid, if the users
tried to specify a relative time timer, it would incorrectly be
treated as absolute regardless of the state of the flags argument.

This patch corrects this, properly checking the absolute/relative flag,
as well as adds further error checking that no invalid flag bits are set.
