It eliminates a race between threads using rte_alarm_cancel and rte_alarm_set.

The patch looks good, but I think it is incomplete.
At rte_eal_alarm_set(), for newly allocated alarm_entry we never reset value of 'executing' to zero.
Yes, it seems  that problem is not new, and was here for a while.
Probably the easiest way to fix it:

@@ -150,7 +150,7 @@ rte_eal_alarm_set(uint64_t us, rte_eal_alarm_callback cb_fn, void *cb_arg)
        if (us < 1 || us > (UINT64_MAX - US_PER_S) || cb_fn == NULL)
                return -EINVAL;

-       new_alarm = rte_malloc(NULL, sizeof(*new_alarm), 0);
+       new_alarm = rte_zmalloc(NULL, sizeof(*new_alarm), 0);
        if (new_alarm == NULL)
                return -ENOMEM;

Plus two nits, see below.

Thanks
Konstantin

I don't think you need:
ap->executing = 0
here.
You are going to free ap anyway.
