    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
    -john
