Seems to be a nice change. I think it would be better to get Tim's fix into
Linus's tree and let your rationalisation bake for a while in -mm.

There is currently a mysterious timer lockup happening on power4 machines.
I'd like to keep these changes well-separated in time so we can get an
understanding of what code changes correlate with changed behaviour.

There are timer changes in Linus's post-2.5.65 tree and your patch generates
zillions of rejects against everything. Can you send me a diff against
Linus's latest sometime?
