[PATCH 0/3] Alarmtimer fixes for 3.1

From: John Stultz
Date: Wed Aug 10 2011 - 19:44:07 EST

Hey Thomas,

In reviewing the alarmtimer code, I ran across a few bugs that should be
fixed for 3.1 and backported to 3.0-stable.

These are also available in the git repository at:
git://git.linaro.org/people/jstultz/linux.git fortglx/3.1/tip/timers/alarmtimers

The last of these is a pretty terrible hack, but I've got a more invasive
fix (along with other cleanups) queued on top of these for 3.2 that should
resolve it. Feel free to take a peek at those changes here:
git://git.linaro.org/people/jstultz/linux.git fortglx/3.2/tip/timers/alarmtimers

Let me know if you have any thoughts or feedback!
