SubjectRe: [patch 00/16] timers: Plug debugobject leaks and use del_timer_sync() in exit/teardown
I was looking at some cases that are marked as possibly insufficient.  Is
the issue that mod_timer or add_timer is called in some function that is
not the timer interrupt handler (or the function that starts the timer
running in the first place)?
