Subject[PATCH][RESEND] linux-2.5.57_timer-none_A0.patch
From
Date
Linus, All,
This is just a re-send against 2.5.55. This patch creates an empty
timer_opt structure (timer_none) which is then used as a default
initializer to the timer pointer. This lets us avoid having to check
before dereferencing the timer in future code.

Please apply.

thanks
