[PATCH] timer: add lock annotation to lock_timer_base
Josh Triplett [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 08:59:36 +0000 (01:59 -0700)]
lock_timer_base acquires a lock and returns with that lock held.  Add a
lock annotation to this function so that sparse can check callers for lock
pairing, and so that sparse will not complain about this function since it
intentionally uses the lock in this manner.
