from the announce email:
| Changes since v4.16.8-rt2:

| - Drop two MCE related patches. They are no longer required since the
| timer wheel rework.

The timer wheel rework made it possible to have a raw_spin_lock_t in the
timer_list timer. The problem with MCE was that it enqueued a timer from
hardirq context which is now possible. So the patches are no longer
required. This revert does not fix a bug in v4.14 nor does it break
anything.
