rtc: fix hrtimer deadlock
Ben reported a lockup related to rtc. The lockup happens due to: CPU0 CPU1 rtc_irq_set_state() __run_hrtimer() spin_lock_irqsave(&rtc->irq_task_lock) rtc_handle_legacy_irq(); spin_lock(&rtc->irq_task_lock); hrtimer_cancel() while (callback_running); So the running callback never finishes as it's blocked on rtc->irq_task_lock. Use hrtimer_try_to_cancel() instead and drop rtc->irq_task_lock while waiting for the callback. Fix this for both rtc_irq_set_state() and rtc_irq_set_freq().
