as I've said before, for reducing power consumption I don't buy into
needing this concept....

If you have high frequency timers, you've lost no matter what (and we
fixed almost all of them in the ecosystem); if you don't have those
then this patch doesn't really add anything.
(and the range-hrtimers fixes the intermediate state)
