Missed a spot.  With this on top, lockdep went silent.

kernel/hrtimer/hotplug: don't wake ktimersoftd while holding the hrtimer base lock

kernel/hrtimer: don't wakeup a process while holding the hrtimer base lock
missed a path, namely hrtimers_dead_cpu() -> migrate_hrtimer_list().  Defer
raising softirq until after base lock has been released there as well.
