alarmtimer: Return relative times in timer_gettime
commit e86fea764991e00a03ff1e56409ec9cacdbda4c9 upstream. Returns the time remaining for an alarm timer, rather than the time at which it is scheduled to expire. If the timer has already expired or it is not currently scheduled, the it_value's members are set to zero. This new behavior matches that of the other posix-timers and the POSIX specifications. This is a change in user-visible behavior, and may break existing applications. Hopefully, few users rely on the old incorrect behavior.
