    i'll fix those up.

    this is a quick hack. The timer code is fully preemptible, but for
    debugging one wants to have a working printk from hardirq contexts too.
    I.e. the mod_timer()/del_timer() would print warnings on PREEMPT_RT.
    We'll need some other approach to solve this cleanly.
