Merge branch 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull timer fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "The itimer removal one is not strictly a fix, but I really wanted to avoid a rebase of the urgent ones." * 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: Revert "clocksource: Load the ACPI PM clocksource asynchronously" clockevents: tTack broadcast device mode change in tick_broadcast_switch_to_oneshot() itimer: Use printk_once instead of WARN_ONCE nohz: Fix stale jiffies update in tick_nohz_restart() tick: Document TICK_ONESHOT config option proc: stats: Use arch_idle_time for idle and iowait times if available itimer: Schedule silent NULL pointer fixup in setitimer() for removal
