Actually the fix is much simpler (I had to wait for the drugs to wear
off before I noticed this ;-):

Subject: [PATCH] timer: Remove redundant log level from printk_deferred() call

printk_deferred() is only used in critical sections that is unsafe to
call printk() directly, and these prints are for warnings only. They
do not take a printk loglevel (KERN_*) in their formats. A KERN_WARNING
is assumed and applied by the call itself.
