Subject: [PATCH 3.2 073/164] x86: Conditionally update time when ack-ing
 pending irqs

3.2.65-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Shai Fultheim <shai@...lemp.com>

commit 42fa4250436304d4650fa271f37671f6cee24e08 upstream.

On virtual environments, apic_read could take a long time. As a
result, under certain conditions the ack pending loop may exit
without any queued irqs left, but after more than one second. A
warning will be printed needlessly in this case.

If the loop is about to exit regardless of max_loops, don't
update it.
