    Subject[PATCH 0/3] 3.5-stable timekeeping fixes merged in 3.6
    Date
    Just wanted to send out a few timekeeping fixes that were merged
    in 3.6 which are appropriate for -stable.

    This queue backports the following fixes:
    -----------------------------------------
    cee58483cf56e0ba355fdd97ff5e8925329aa936 time: Move ktime_t overflow checking into timespec_valid_strict
    bf2ac312195155511a0f79325515cbb61929898a time: Avoid making adjustments if we haven't accumulated anything
    4e8b14526ca7fb046a81c94002c1c43b6fdf0e9b time: Improve sanity checking of timekeeping inputs

    I've run these through my timetest suite w/ kvm on both i386
    & x86_64. But more testing would be of course appreciated.

    I also have patch queues for all the -stable trees that I'll be
    sending out as my testing completes for those trees.
