Subject[PATCH 6/9] timer: Expand clk forward logic beyond nohz
Date
As for next_expiry, we want to expand base->clk catch up logic beyond
nohz in order to avoid triggering useless softirqs.

If we want to fire softirqs only to expire pending timers, periodic
base->clk increments must be skippable for random amounts of time.
Therefore we must prepare to catch-up with missing updates whenever we
need an up-to-date base clock.
