clockevents: Introduce CLOCK_EVT_STATE_ONESHOT_STOPPED state

When no timers/hrtimers are pending, the expiry time is set to a
special value: 'KTIME_MAX'. This normally happens with
NO_HZ_{IDLE|FULL} in both LOWRES/HIGHRES modes.

When 'expiry == KTIME_MAX', we either cancel the 'tick-sched' hrtimer
(NOHZ_MODE_HIGHRES) or skip reprogramming clockevent device
(NOHZ_MODE_LOWRES).  But, the clockevent device is already
reprogrammed from the tick-handler for next tick.

As the clock event device is programmed in ONESHOT mode it will at
least fire one more time (unnecessarily). Timers on few
implementations (like arm_arch_timer, etc.) only support PERIODIC mode
and their drivers emulate ONESHOT over that. Which means that on these
platforms we will get spurious interrupts periodically (at last
programmed interval rate, normally tick rate).

In order to avoid spurious interrupts, the clockevent device should be
stopped or its interrupts should be masked.

A simple (yet hacky) solution to get this fixed could be: update
hrtimer_force_reprogram() to always reprogram clockevent device and
update clockevent drivers to STOP generating events (or delay it to
max time) when 'expires' is set to KTIME_MAX. But the drawback here is
that every clockevent driver has to be hacked for this particular case
and its very easy for new ones to miss this.

However, Thomas suggested to add an optional state ONESHOT_STOPPED to
solve this problem: lkml.org/lkml/2014/5/9/508.

This patch adds support for ONESHOT_STOPPED state in clockevents
core. It will only be available to drivers that implement the
state-specific callbacks instead of the legacy ->set_mode() callback.
