Sorry to be late to the bike-shed party, but what about:

Documentation/power/suspend-and-interrupts.txt:the IRQ's users. For this reason, using IRQF_NO_SUSPEND and IRQF_SHARED at the

arch/arm/mach-omap2/mux.c: omap_hwmod_mux_handle_irq, IRQF_SHARED | IRQF_NO_SUSPEND,
arch/arm/mach-omap2/pm34xx.c: _prcm_int_handle_io, IRQF_SHARED | IRQF_NO_SUSPEND, "pm_io",

drivers/mfd/ab8500-gpadc.c: IRQF_NO_SUSPEND | IRQF_SHARED, "ab8500-gpadc-hw",
drivers/pinctrl/pinctrl-single.c: IRQF_SHARED | IRQF_NO_SUSPEND,

drivers/watchdog/intel-mid_wdt.c: IRQF_SHARED | IRQF_NO_SUSPEND, "watchdog",

Is there a single legitimate user in that list? If so, the TIMER name
might be misleading.
