I got it from the patch you sent to me before. attach it again.
Apologizes if it's improper to cc this list.

Subject: [PATCH] clocksource: register cpu notifier to remove timer from
dying CPU

clocksource core is using add_timer_on() to run clocksource_watchdog() on all
CPUs one by one. But when a core is brought down, clocksource core doesn't
remove this timer from the dying CPU. And in this case timer core gives this
(Gives this only with unmerged code, anyway in the current code as well timer
core is migrating a pinned timer to other CPUs, which is also wrong:
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/1898117)

migrate_timer_list: can't migrate pinned timer: ffffffff81f06a60,
timer->function: ffffffff810d7010,deactivating it Modules linked in:

This patch tries to fix this by registering cpu notifiers from clocksource core,
only when we start clocksource-watchdog. And if on the CPU_DEAD notification it
is found that dying CPU was the CPU on which this timer is queued on, then it is
removed from that CPU and queued to next CPU.
