Well, it might be that way, but obviously that's not the case with the
code which is in the xtime lock write locked region (except for the
do_timer() call). :)

get_maintainers creates ugly long cc lists. I prefer hand selected
cc's. For the arch specific changes cc'ing only the relevant
maintainer (retrieved from MAINTAINERS) is enough.

Either way works. If I pick up such a series, my scripts generate the
Cc list in the changelog from the mail CC list.
