sched: Fix RLIMIT_RTTIME when PI-boosting to RT
When non-realtime tasks get priority-inheritance boosted to a realtime scheduling class, RLIMIT_RTTIME starts to apply to them. However, the counter used for checking this (the same one used for SCHED_RR timeslices) was not getting reset. This meant that tasks running with a non-realtime scheduling class which are repeatedly boosted to a realtime one, but never block while they are running realtime, eventually hit the timeout without ever running for a time over the limit. This patch resets the realtime timeslice counter when un-PI-boosting from an RT to a non-RT scheduling class. I have some test code with two threads and a shared PTHREAD_PRIO_INHERIT mutex which induces priority boosting and spins while boosted that gets killed by a SIGXCPU on non-fixed kernels but doesn't with this patch applied. It happens much faster with a CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT kernel, and does happen eventually with PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY kernels.
