Fixes a regression introduced by 'ntp: Fix leap-second hrtimer
livelock'.

Minor.

The livelock in question involves two threads acquiring two locks in
opposite order; prior to 3.4 they were just one lock. But there have
been reports of lockup in adjtimex() on earlier kernel versions, which
might be a similar bug.

That's the one that caused user-space to effectively busy-wait.

Default Bug#679882: linux: leap second fixes missing in 3.2 and 2.6.32 longterm

Hi Ben,

Is anything happening with this bug e.g. getting the patches into the
Debian stable kernel package (2.6.32) and a new version pushed out?
We had another meltdown at the end of August and it would be really
helpful to have an upgrade before the end of this month (September,
in 23 days).

Nothing has been added to the bug report since the 5th of last month
(August); if there is updated information could someone please update
the bug report?

Thanks/best,

I've applied John Stultz's backport to my local tree - will commit it
after some testing.
