hrtimer: Prevent hrtimer_enqueue_reprogram race
hrtimer_enqueue_reprogram contains a race which could result in timer.base switch during unlock/lock sequence. hrtimer_enqueue_reprogram is releasing the lock protecting the timer base for calling raise_softirq_irqsoff() due to a lock ordering issue versus rq->lock. If during that time another CPU calls __hrtimer_start_range_ns() on the same hrtimer, the timer base might switch, before the current CPU can lock base->lock again and therefor the unlock_timer_base() call will unlock the wrong lock.
