Merge branch 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull timer fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "A set of small fixes: - regression fix for exynos_mct clocksource - trivial build fix for kona clocksource - functional one liner fix for the sh_tmu clocksource - two validation fixes to prevent (root only) data corruption in the kernel via settimeofday and adjtimex. Tagged for stable" * 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: time: adjtimex: Validate the ADJ_FREQUENCY values time: settimeofday: Validate the values of tv from user clocksource: sh_tmu: Set cpu_possible_mask to fix SMP broadcast clocksource: kona: fix __iomem annotation clocksource: exynos_mct: Fix bitmask regression for exynos4_mct_write
