Subject[GIT pull] timer fix for 4.15
Linus,

please pull the latest timers-urgent-for-linus git tree from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git timers-urgent-for-linus

A single fix for a ~10 years old problem which causes high resolution
timers to stop after a CPU unplug/plug cycle due to a stale flag in the per
CPU hrtimer base struct. Paul McKenney was hunting this for about a year,
but the heisenbug nature made it resistant against debug attempts for quite
some time.

Thanks,

tglx
