Subject: [PATCH 00/11] timer: Reduce timers softirq v3

This set piggybacks the 3 patches that have been posted seperately
along the reviews.

Changes since v2:

1) Add "timer: Fix wheel index calculation on last level"
   This one targets timers/urgent

2) Add "timer: Preserve higher bits of expiration on index calculation"
       "timer: Move trigger_dyntick_cpu() to enqueue_timer()"

3) Rebase the series against the whole

4) Fix comments in "timer: Move trigger_dyntick_cpu() to enqueue_timer()"
   as per Anna Maria's suggestion

5) Fix comments in "timer: Add comments about calc_index() ceiling work"
   as per Thomas' suggestion

Please pull the timers/softirq-v3 branch that can be found at:
