SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/2][RFC] Potential fix for leapsecond caused futex issue (v2)

So while still waiting for feedback on the clock_was_set() change, I
went ahead and generated backports for most of the stable kernels on
kernel.org.

Clearly these shouldn't go anywhere until the fix is upstream, but since
I assume there's a number of distro developers who are likely under
pressure to have a fix soon, I wanted to make them available so no one
is duplicating work.

You can find them here:

I did boot and test each of those kernels with my leaptest-timer.c test
successfully.

thanks
