[GIT pull] timer updates for 4.15




Linus,

please pull the latest timers-core-for-linus git tree from:

   git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git timers-core-for-linus

Yet another big pile of changes:

  - More year 2038 work from Arnd slowly reaching the point where we need
    to think about the syscalls themself.

  - A new timer function which allows to conditionally (re)arm a timer only
    when it's either not running or the new expiry time is sooner than the
    armed expiry time. This allows to use a single timer for multiple
    timeout requirements w/o caring about the first expiry time at the call
    site.

  - A new NMI safe accessor to clock real time for the printk timestamp
    work. Can be used by tracing, perf as well if required.

  - A large number of timer setup conversions from Kees which got collected
    here because either maintainers requested so or they simply got
    ignored.  As Kees pointed out already there are a few trivial merge
    conflicts and some redundant commits which was unavoidable due to the
    size of this conversion effort.

  - Avoid a redundant iteration in the timer wheel softirq processing.

  - Provide a mechanism to treat RTC implementations depending on their
    hardware properties, i.e. don't inflict the write at the 0.5 seconds
    boundary which originates from the PC CMOS RTC to all RTCs. No
    functional change as drivers need to be updated separately.

  - The usual small updates to core code clocksource drivers. Nothing
    really exciting.

Thanks,

	tglx

Note: As already mentioned in the printk pull request the following commits
have been pulled into the printk branch:

4c3711d7fb47 ("timekeeping: Provide NMI safe access to clock realtime")
5df32107f609 ("timekeeping: Make fast accessors return 0 before timekeeping is initialized")

and might be redundant depending on the merge order.
