Subject[PATCH 1/3] hrtimer: Fix clock_was_set so it is safe to call from irq context
Date
NOTE:This is a prerequisite patch that's required to
address the widely observed leap-second related futex/hrtimer
issues.

Currently clock_was_set() is unsafe to be called from irq
context, as it calls on_each_cpu(). This causes problems when
we need to adjust the time from update_wall_time().

To fix this, if clock_was_set is called when irqs are
disabled, we schedule a timer to fire for immedately after
we're out of interrupt context to then notify the hrtimer
subsystem.
