Subject[PATCH 0/8] Time fixes and cleanups for 3.6
Hey Thomas,
Since you're offline next week, I wanted to send you my updated
queue for the 3.6 merge window.

These are mostly the same changes I sent you with my earlier 3.6 pull
request mid-last month, but reordered and trimmed down to focus on
cleanups (no new features).

There is one NTP bug fix, from a change in 3.4, but given its non critical
and we're late in the 3.5-rc cycle, I wanted to hold it off for 3.6 and
backport it once merged.

Since these expect the leapsecond hrtimer/time changes currently in
tip/timers/urgent, it is based off of that branch, rather then
tip/timers/core. Although tip/timers/core merges fairly cleanly (there's
only a minor collision with already upstream 3.5 changes).

Let me know if these look ok. With the exception of the NTP fix, the rest
can wait till 3.7 if you'd prefer, so they're nothing urgent.
