timer_delete() deletes the timer whose ID is given in timerid. If the timer was armed at the time of this call, it is disarmed before being deleted. The treatment of any pending signal generated by the deleted timer is unspecified.
On success, timer_delete() returns 0. On failure, -1 is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.
EINVAL timerid is not a valid timer ID.
This system call is available since Linux 2.6.
