[PATCH 4/6 option-B] kmod: add new wait_for_completion_timeout_state() helper



This patch is if the more desirable patch is not accepted:

    completion: Add new wait_for_completion_timeout_state

    There are sometime places where an API hides a completion
    inside it's implementation, and needs to expose the kind of
    wait it does to it's upper users. Instead of such cases that
    now need an ugly switch case to call the different
    wait_for_completion_xxx function define a generic one
    which can do all.

    A new user will be added to this API in linux/kmod.h.

    The return value from this member is a more Linux Kernel natural.
    It will return:
    	0  - If the wait was actually completed by a complete() signal.
    	-ERESTARTSYS - If interrupted
    	-ETIMEDOUT - If timeout expired

It can be seen that done here is more complicated/ugly then if
done at kernel/sched/core.c

Note that at this stage there is a warning:
kernel/kmod.c:473:1: warning: 'wait_for_completion_timeout_state' defined but not used [-Wunused-function]

Until the next patch. I keep it separate for the different options
to be taken
