[PATCH v7 17/21] timer: Check if timers base is handled already

From: Anna-Maria Behnsen
Date: Wed May 24 2023 - 03:08:24 EST

Due to the conversion of the NOHZ timer placement to a pull at expiry
time model, the per CPU timer bases with non pinned timers are no
longer handled only by the local CPU. In case a remote CPU already
expires the non pinned timers base of the local cpu, nothing more
needs to be done by the local CPU. A check at the begin of the expire
timers routine is required, because timer base lock is dropped before
executing the timer callback function.

This is a preparatory work, but has no functional impact right now.
