Subject: [GIT Pull] timer fixes for 3.14

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

Short summary:

      * Serialize the registration of a new sched_clock in the
        currently ARM only generic sched_clock facilty to avoid
        sched_clock havoc

Thanks,

        tglx
