    Subject[PATCH 0/4] Time fixes for 3.6
    Thomas, Ingo,
    Here are four small time fixes for 3.6
    that apply against tip/timers/urgent.

    One patch resolves the suspend issue Andreas saw.

    The next two are casting fixes for potential overflows
    on 32bits, that Andreas found, but haven't been observed
    in the wild.

    Finally the last one fixes an issue I found in my own
    testing w/ the _COARSE clocksources.

    Please take a look at them and let me know if you have
    any thoughts or objections.

    Andreas Schwab (1):
    time: Fix casting issue in timekeeping_forward_now

    John Stultz (3):
    time: Ensure we normalize the timekeeper in tk_xtime_add
    time: Avoid potential shift-overflow with large shift values
    time: Avoid making adjustments if we havne't accumulated anything
