Subject[PATCH 1/4] lockdep, timer: Fix del_timer_sync() annotation
Calling local_bh_enable() will want to actually start processing
softirqs, which isn't a good idea since this can get called with IRQs
disabled.

Cure this by using _local_bh_enable() which doesn't start processing
softirqs, and use raw_local_irq_save() to avoid any softirqs from
happending without letting lockdep think IRQs are in fact disabled.
