Well, this looks strange, imho. If the caller wants TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE,
it should simply pass TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE.
wait_for_completion_timeout_state(state => 0) looks confusing, and this
is not symmetrical wrt other states.

I tend to agree with Peter. This is the common helper, probably it
will have more users. We shouldn't throw out the positive return
value, it can be useful.

call_usermodehelper_exec() can simply do

	retval = wait_for_common(...);

	if (retval > 0)
		retval = sub_info->retval;
	else if (!retval)
		retval = -ETIMEDOUT;
