Subject: [PATCH] [2.4] add wait_event_interruptible_timeout

The sleep_on* series of calls is unsafe, and prone to race conditions.
They've been unofficially deprecated for a while. Instead, we're
supposed to use the wait_event* series of calls.

There's only one problem with this. There's no equivalent of

So, the attached patch adds 'wait_event_timeout' and
'wait_event_interruptible_timeout' The diff is generated against
2.4.20-pre7, but should apply cleanly to just about any 2.4/2.2 release,
and maybe even 2.5 as well.

Back to the bit mines..
