[PATCH 00/13] timer: Start conversion to timer_setup()

From: Kees Cook

This is the first of many timer infrastructure cleanups to simplify the
timer API[1]. All of these patches are expected to land via the timer
tree, so Acks (or corrections) appreciated.

These patches refactor various users of timer API that are NOT just using
init_timer() or setup_timer() (which is the vast majority of users,
and are being converted separately). These changes are focused on the
lesser-used init_timer_*(), TIMER_*INITIALIZER(), and DEFINE_TIMER()
methods of preparing a timer.
