Merge branch 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull timer fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "A pile of fixes for long standing issues with the timer wheel and the NOHZ code: - Prevent timer base confusion accross the nohz switch, which can cause unlocked access and data corruption - Reinitialize the stale base clock on cpu hotplug to prevent subtle side effects including rollovers on 32bit - Prevent an interrupt storm when the timer softirq is already pending caused by tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() - Move the timer start tracepoint to a place where it actually makes sense - Add documentation to timerqueue functions as they caused confusion several times now" * 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: timerqueue: Document return values of timerqueue_add/del() timers: Invoke timer_start_debug() where it makes sense nohz: Prevent a timer interrupt storm in tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() timers: Reinitialize per cpu bases on hotplug timers: Use deferrable base independent of base::nohz_active
