Pull more timer updates from Thomas Gleixner:
 "A set of posix CPU timer changes which allows to defer the heavy work
  of posix CPU timers into task work context. The tick interrupt is
  reduced to a quick check which queues the work which is doing the
  heavy lifting before returning to user space or going back to guest
  mode. Moving this out is deferring the signal delivery slightly but
  posix CPU timers are inaccurate by nature as they depend on the tick
  so there is no real damage. The relevant test cases all passed.

  This lifts the last offender for RT out of the hard interrupt context
  tick handler, but it also has the general benefit that the actual
  heavy work is accounted to the task/process and not to the tick
  interrupt itself.

  Further optimizations are possible to break long sighand lock hold and
  interrupt disabled (on !RT kernels) times when a massive amount of
  posix CPU timers (which are unpriviledged) is armed for a
  task/process.

  This is currently only enabled for x86 because the architecture has to
  ensure that task work is handled in KVM before entering a guest, which
  was just established for x86 with the new common entry/exit code which
  got merged post 5.8 and is not the case for other KVM architectures"
