Subject: [GIT pull] timer fix for 4.10

Linus,

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

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

Prevent NULL pointer dereferencing in the tick broadcast code. Old bug,
which got unearthed by the hotplug ordering problem.

Thanks,

	tglx
