    Merge branch 'timers-core-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip · 0bbcce5d
    Linus Torvalds authored
    Pull timers and timekeeping updates from Thomas Gleixner:
     - Core infrastucture work for Y2038 to address the COMPAT interfaces:
         + Add a new Y2038 safe __kernel_timespec and use it in the core
         + Introduce config switches which allow to control the various
           compat mechanisms
         + Use the new config switch in the posix timer code to control the
           32bit compat syscall implementation.
     - Prevent bogus selection of CPU local clocksources which causes an
       endless reselection loop
     - Remove the extra kthread in the clocksource code which has no value
       and just adds another level of indirection
     - The usual bunch of trivial updates, cleanups and fixlets all over the
     - More SPDX conversions
