[NETLINK]: Fix unicast timeouts
Patrick McHardy [Wed, 7 Nov 2007 10:42:09 +0000 (02:42 -0800)]
Commit ed6dcf4a in the history.git tree broke netlink_unicast timeouts
by moving the schedule_timeout() call to a new function that doesn't
propagate the remaining timeout back to the caller. This means on each
retry we start with the full timeout again.

ipc/mqueue.c seems to actually want to wait indefinitely so this
behaviour is retained.
