posix-timers: move the rcu head out of the union

On RT the timer can be preempted while running and therefore we wait
with timer_wait_for_callback() for the timer to complete (instead of
busy looping). The RCU-readlock is held to ensure that this posix timer
is not removed while we wait on it.
If the timer is removed then it invokes call_rcu() with a pointer that
is shared with the hrtimer because it is part of the same union.
In order to avoid any possible side effects I am moving the rcu pointer
out of the union.
