Subject: [PATCH v3 0/2] timer: make deferrable cpu unbound timers really not bound to a cpu

These patches are introducing support for global deferrable timers
and this feature is very useful for the mobile chipsets. All comments
in initial discussion [1] are addressed. Here is the latest discussion - [2]
as these  patches are in downstream kernel for quite a long time.


v2 -> v3:
 - Fixed 'kbuild test robot' warnings.

v1 -> v2:
 - Fixed tglx comments about warning.
 - Thanks Pavan for your suggestion.
