I've not been able to take a deep review yet, but this looks pretty much
like what we discussed last week, so I'm happy with it so far. Has this
gotten much testing (on both 32 and 64bit systems?)

One detail: Most of this is likely to go in via tip/timers/core, but the
5/17 "arch_timer: Move to generic sched_clock" will need some
synchronization with Catalin to make sure its ok to go in via tip. Not
sure what other arm64 changes are pending that would depend or collide
with that change.

thanks
