Subject: [PATCH] block/aoe: discover_timer: Convert timers to use
 timer_setup()

In preparation for unconditionally passing the struct timer_list pointer to
all timer callbacks, switch to using the new timer_setup() and from_timer()
to pass the timer pointer explicitly.

This refactors the discover_timer to remove the needless locking and
state machine used for synchronizing timer death. Using del_timer_sync()
will already do the right thing.
