This is fixing the wrong end, really.

Timer migration can be delayed by other means as well.

The real problem is that the migration happens _after_ the CPU is
completely dead and the hotplug control thread is not guaranteed to
reach the timer migration state before timers are overdue at all.

There is a bunch of related problems, e.g. the interrupt migration
mechanism kicks in late as well.

I'm not against changing the log level per se, but the justification for
doing so is just bogus.

The more obvious question is whether these printks are useful at all
other than at the pr_debug() level.
