Subject: remove of ktimersoftd in linux-rt-devel 5.0

About a year ago the following commit greatly simplified softirqs:

commit 6f6ba7715a91877cf5fd2b357db3799baa331d9b
Author: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

    softirq: rework

It also removed ktimersoftd, without comment as far as I can see.  Is
it obvious that performance improvements due to lockless
synchronization render useless the earlier split of ktimersoftd from
ksoftirqd?   Is it now less likely that a large number of other
softirqs that are run immediately when hard IRQs terminate will use up
ksoftirqd's time slice and prevent the timer softirqs from getting a
chance to run?

Thanks,
