timekeeping: Avoid possible deadlock from clock_was_set_delayed
commit 6fdda9a9c5db367130cf32df5d6618d08b89f46a upstream. As part of normal operaions, the hrtimer subsystem frequently calls into the timekeeping code, creating a locking order of hrtimer locks -> timekeeping locks clock_was_set_delayed() was suppoed to allow us to avoid deadlocks between the timekeeping the hrtimer subsystem, so that we could notify the hrtimer subsytem the time had changed while holding the timekeeping locks. This was done by scheduling delayed work that would run later once we were out of the timekeeing code. But unfortunately the lock chains are complex enoguh that in scheduling delayed work, we end up eventually trying to grab an hrtimer lock. Sasha Levin noticed this in testing when the new seqlock lockdep enablement triggered the following (somewhat abrieviated) message: [ 251.100221] ====================================================== [ 251.100221] [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ] [ 251.100221] 3.13.0-rc2-next-20131206-sasha-00005-g8be2375-dirty #4053 Not tainted [ 251.101967] ------------------------------------------------------- [ 251.101967] kworker/10:1/4506 is trying to acquire lock: [ 251.101967] (timekeeper_seq){----..}, at: [<ffffffff81160e96>] retrigger_next_event+0x56/0x70 [ 251.101967] [ 251.101967] but task is already holding lock: [ 251.101967] (hrtimer_bases.lock#11){-.-...}, at: [<ffffffff81160e7c>] retrigger_next_event+0x3c/0x70 [ 251.101967] [ 251.101967] which lock already depends on the new lock.

This works for the case here, where the do_adjtimex() was the deadlock trigger point. Unfortuantely, in update_wall_time() we still hold the jiffies lock, which would deadlock with the ipi triggered by clock_was_set(), preventing us from calling it even after we drop the timekeeping lock. So instead call clock_was_set_delayed() at that point.
