Merge branch 'timers-core-for-linus' of git://
Pull timer updates from Thomas Gleixner: "The time/timekeeping/timer folks deliver with this update: - Fix a reintroduced signed/unsigned issue and cleanup the whole signed/unsigned mess in the timekeeping core so this wont happen accidentaly again. - Add a new trace clock based on boot time - Prevent injection of random sleep times when PM tracing abuses the RTC for storage - Make posix timers configurable for real tiny systems - Add tracepoints for the alarm timer subsystem so timer based suspend wakeups can be instrumented - The usual pile of fixes and updates to core and drivers" * 'timers-core-for-linus' of git:// (23 commits) timekeeping: Use mul_u64_u32_shr() instead of open coding it timekeeping: Get rid of pointless typecasts timekeeping: Make the conversion call chain consistently unsigned timekeeping_Force_unsigned_clocksource_to_nanoseconds_conversion alarmtimer: Add tracepoints for alarm timers trace: Update documentation for mono, mono_raw and boot clock trace: Add an option for boot clock as trace clock timekeeping: Add a fast and NMI safe boot clock timekeeping/clocksource_cyc2ns: Document intended range limitation timekeeping: Ignore the bogus sleep time if pm_trace is enabled selftests/timers: Fix spelling mistake "Asyncrhonous" -> "Asynchronous" clocksource/drivers/bcm2835_timer: Unmap region obtained by of_iomap clocksource/drivers/arm_arch_timer: Map frame with of_io_request_and_map() arm64: dts: rockchip: Arch counter doesn't tick in system suspend clocksource/drivers/arm_arch_timer: Don't assume clock runs in suspend posix-timers: Make them configurable posix_cpu_timers: Move the add_device_randomness() call to a proper place timer: Move sys_alarm from timer.c to itimer.c ptp_clock: Allow for it to be optional Kconfig: Regenerate *.c_shipped files after previous changes ...

+ This includes native support for POSIX timers to the kernel.
+ Some embedded systems have no use for them and therefore they
+ can be configured out to reduce the size of the kernel image.
+ When this option is disabled, the following syscalls won't be
+ available: timer_create, timer_gettime: timer_getoverrun,
+ timer_settime, timer_delete, clock_adjtime, getitimer,
+ setitimer, alarm. Furthermore, the clock_settime, clock_gettime,
+ clock_getres and clock_nanosleep syscalls will be limited to
+ If unsure say y.
