rtc: handle errors correctly in rtc_irq_set_state()
Thomas Gleixner [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 23:08:18 +0000 (16:08 -0700)]
The code checks the correctness of the parameters, but unconditionally
arms/disarms the hrtimer.

The result is that a random task might arm/disarm rtc timer and surprise
the real owner by either generating events or by stopping them.
