[GIT PULL] tick: A few more cleanups

From: Frederic Weisbecker
Date: Thu Jan 16 2014 - 10:42:08 EST


Please pull the timers/core branch that can be found at:


HEAD: 8fe8ff09ce3b5750e1f3e45a1f4a81d59c7ff1f1

Nothing very exiting, just a bunch of non-critical cleanups for the next merge window:

1) Make the IRQ tick APIs naming more symetric

2) Optimize a bit jiffies_lock code coverage

3) Whitespace fixes from Alex Shi

4) Fix overflow in scheduler tick max deferment calculation. Given the
current 1 second max limitation, this bug shouldn't happen in mainline.
It's rather to prepare for making this value tunable. Or simply in case
we change the current constant.


Frederic Weisbecker (2):
tick: Rename tick_check_idle() to tick_irq_enter()
nohz: Get timekeeping max deferment outside jiffies_lock

Alex Shi (1):
nohz_full: fix code style issue of tick_nohz_full_stop_tick

Kevin Hilman (1):
sched/nohz: Fix overflow error in scheduler_tick_max_deferment()
