Make futex_wait() use an hrtimer for timeout
This patch modifies futex_wait() to use an hrtimer + schedule() in place of schedule_timeout(). schedule_timeout() is tick based, therefore the timeout granularity is the tick (1 ms, 4 ms or 10 ms depending on HZ). By using a high resolution timer for timeout wakeup, we can attain a much finer timeout granularity (in the microsecond range). This parallels what is already done for futex_lock_pi(). The timeout passed to the syscall is no longer converted to jiffies and is therefore passed to do_futex() and futex_wait() as an absolute ktime_t therefore keeping nanosecond resolution. Also this removes the need to pass the nanoseconds timeout part to futex_lock_pi() in val2. In futex_wait(), if there is no timeout then a regular schedule() is performed. Otherwise, an hrtimer is fired before schedule() is called.
