SubjectRe: [patch 00/16] timers: Plug debugobject leaks and use del_timer_sync() in exit/teardown
As far as I could tell, (part of) the issue is that any kind of exit or 
close function should use del_timer_sync, because they could be called
from a different CPU than the one that started up the timer?

Here is a semantic patch that takes care of the case of simple module_exit
functions:

@r@
declarer name module_exit;
identifier ex;
@@

module_exit(ex);

@@
identifier r.ex;
@@

ex(...) {
<...
- del_timer
+ del_timer_sync
(...)
...>
}

The transformations it makes are below. I haven't had a chance to check
which results overlap with what Thomas has already sent, but I could look
into it if this is the right idea. I guess other kinds of close/exit
functions would have to be identified manually, to make more rules.

In what circumstance can one be sure that two instructions are executed on
the same CPU?
