Merge branch 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull timer fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "This adds a new timer wheel function which is required for the conversion of the timer callback function from the 'unsigned long data' argument to 'struct timer_list *timer'. This conversion has two benefits: 1) It makes struct timer_list smaller 2) Many callers hand in a pointer to the timer or to the structure containing the timer, which happens via type casting both at setup and in the callback. This change gets rid of the typecasts. Once the conversion is complete, which is planned for 4.15, the old setup function and the intermediate typecast in the new setup function go away along with the data field in struct timer_list. Merging this now into mainline allows a smooth queueing of the actual conversion in the affected maintainer trees without creating dependencies" * 'timers-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: um/time: Fixup namespace collision timer: Prepare to change timer callback argument type
