    Pull timer updates from Thomas Gleixner:
     "The timer departement presents:
       - A rather large rework of the hrtimer infrastructure which
         introduces softirq based hrtimers to replace the spread of
         hrtimer/tasklet combos which force the actual callback execution
         into softirq context. The approach is completely different from the
         initial implementation which you cursed at 10 years ago rightfully.
         The softirq based timers have their own queues and there is no
         nasty indirection and list reshuffling in the hard interrupt
         anymore. This comes with conversion of some of the hrtimer/tasklet
         users, the rest and the final removal of that horrible interface
         will come towards the end of the merge window or go through the
         relevant maintainer trees.
         Note: The top commit merged the last minute bugfix for the 10 years
         old CPU hotplug bug as I wanted to make sure that I fatfinger the
         merge conflict resolution myself.
       - The overhaul of the STM32 clocksource/clockevents driver
       - A new driver for the Spreadtrum SC9860 timer
       - A new driver dor the Actions Semi S700 timer
       - The usual set of fixes and updates all over the place"
