Subject: [PATCH] alarmtimer: Fix bug where relative alarm timers were treated as absolute
Date: Mon,  7 Jul 2014 14:06:11 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1404767171-6902-1-git-send-email-john.stultz@linaro.org> (raw)

Sharvil noticed with the posix timer_settime interface, using the
CLOCK_REALTIME_ALARM or CLOCK_BOOTTIME_ALARM clockid, if the users
tried to specify a relative time timer, it would incorrectly be
treated as absolute regardless of the state of the flags argument.

This patch corrects this, properly checking the absolute/relative flag,
as well as adds further error checking that no invalid flag bits are set.
