Error is not shown by setting invalid value to timer_migration. Valid
values for timer_migration should be restricted to 0 and 1. Testcase for
this bug is ltp/runpwtests06.

While I agree with the change, I disagree with the changelog. Where is the bug?

The timer code checks for timer_migration != 0 resp. == 0. So as long as
the value is != 0 it's enabled, if it's 0 it is disabled.

It's a correctness issue that we treat a sysctl which is basically a
boolean as such. Ideally we'd have: proc_doboolvec() for such cases and
convert all similar sysctls over to that.

Thanks,

timer/sysclt: Restrict timer migration sysctl values to 0 and 1

timer_migration sysctl acts as a boolean switch, so the allowed values
should be restricted to 0 and 1.

Add the necessary extra fields to the sysctl table entry to enforce that.

I understood. I'll resubmit the patch after fixing log.
