[PATCH V2] futex: set FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT during demux for FUTEX_WAIT

From: Darren Hart
Date: Thu Apr 14 2011 - 14:46:07 EST

The FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT flag was not getting set, causing the restart_block to
restart futex_wait() without a timeout after a signal.

Commit b41277dc7a18ee332d in 2.6.38 introduced the regression by accidentally
removing the the FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT assignment from futex_wait() during the setup
of the restart block. It makes more sense to set the flag earlier during
do_futex() where the other flags are set, although futex_wait is the only user
of FLAGS_HAS_TIMEOUT as it is the only op using a relative timeout (an
unfortunately preexisting condition).
