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
