    Linus Torvalds authored
    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"
