Please pull the timers/core branch that can be found at:


Note that "watchdog: Boot-disable by default on full dynticks" is a temporary

A proper and longer term solution has been proposed by Peterz:


I plan to work on it. But since I'll be off next week, I prefer to have

Frederic Weisbecker (4):
watchdog: Register / unregister watchdog kthreads on sysctl control
watchdog: Rename confusing state variable
watchdog: Boot-disable by default on full dynticks
nohz: Remove obsolete check for full dynticks CPUs to be RCU nocbs

Steven Rostedt (1):
nohz: Warn if the machine can not perform nohz_full
