[PATCH 2/2] posix-timers: Exposes DELAYTIMER_MAX constant used to govern overruns


POSIX.1-2001 specification of timer_getoverrun() supports constant
DELAYTIMER_MAX which prevents overflow and caps overrun count.  Exposes
delaytimer_max value to userland via /proc/sys/kernel/delaytimer_max such
that GLIBC can support DELAYTIMER_MAX constant.
