Linus,

please pull the latest timers-urgent-for-linus git tree from:

   git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git timers-urgent-for-linus

This is the final update for 4.15-rc1:

 - The final conversion of timer wheel timers to timer_setup(). A few
   manual conversions and a large coccinelle assisted sweep and the removal
   of the old initialization mechanisms and the related code.

 - Removal of the now unused VSYSCALL update code

 - Fix permissions of /proc/timer_list. I still need to get rid of that
   file completely

 - Rename of a misnomed clocksource function and removal of a stale
   declaration.

Thanks,

	tglx
