      Pull the leap second fixes from Thomas Gleixner:
       "It's a rather large series, but well discussed, refined and reviewed.
        It got a massive testing by John, Prarit and tip.
        In theory we could split it into two parts.  The first two patches
          f55a6faa: hrtimer: Provide clock_was_set_delayed()
          4873fa07: timekeeping: Fix leapsecond triggered load spike issue
        are merely preventing the stuff loops forever issues, which people
        have observed.
        But there is no point in delaying the other 4 commits which achieve
        full correctness into 3.6 as they are tagged for stable anyway.  And I
        rather prefer to have the full fixes merged in bulk than a "prevent
        the observable wreckage and deal with the hidden fallout later"

      x86/vsyscall: allow seccomp filter in vsyscall=emulate · 5651721e
      Will Drewry authored
      If a seccomp filter program is installed, older static binaries and
      distributions with older libc implementations (glibc 2.13 and earlier)
      that rely on vsyscall use will be terminated regardless of the filter
      program policy when executing time, gettimeofday, or getcpu.  This is
      only the case when vsyscall emulation is in use (vsyscall=emulate is the
      This patch emulates system call entry inside a vsyscall=emulate by
      populating regs->ax and regs->orig_ax with the system call number prior
      to calling into seccomp such that all seccomp-dependencies function
      normally.  Additionally, system call return behavior is emulated in line
      with other vsyscall entrypoints for the trace/trap cases.
      [ v2: fixed ip and sp on SECCOMP_RET_TRAP/TRACE (thanks to luto@mit.edu) ]
