Not having done this before, I assume I just ask you to take patches
from LKML, or to pull from my tree?

I've set up a "timers" branch in my kernel.org git repo in any case
(git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/cmetcalf/linux-tile.git)
that has the commits in it.

Sure; makes sense. I will post a v2 with two patches in the patchset
and see if anyone else wants to comment in the next couple of days,
and then ask you to pull, or take the patch series, at that point.

Thanks!
