Subject: [PATCH v2] time: Remove CONFIG_TIMER_STATS

Currently CONFIG_TIMER_STATS exposes process information across namespaces:

kernel/time/timer_list.c print_timer():

        SEQ_printf(m, ", %s/%d", tmp, timer->start_pid);

/proc/timer_list:

 #11: <0000000000000000>, hrtimer_wakeup, S:01, do_nanosleep, cron/2570

Given that the tracer can give the same information, this patch entirely
removes CONFIG_TIMER_STATS.

Suggested-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@...utronix.de>

-timer_stats - timer usage statistics
-------------------------------------
-
-timer_stats is a debugging facility to make the timer (ab)usage in a Linux
-system visible to kernel and userspace developers. If enabled in the config
-but not used it has almost zero runtime overhead, and a relatively small
-data structure overhead. Even if collection is enabled runtime all the
-locking is per-CPU and lookup is hashed.
-
-timer_stats should be used by kernel and userspace developers to verify that
-their code does not make unduly use of timers. This helps to avoid unnecessary
-wakeups, which should be avoided to optimize power consumption.
-
-It can be enabled by CONFIG_TIMER_STATS in the "Kernel hacking" configuration
-section.
-
-timer_stats collects information about the timer events which are fired in a
-Linux system over a sample period:
-
-- the pid of the task(process) which initialized the timer
-- the name of the process which initialized the timer
-- the function where the timer was initialized
-- the callback function which is associated to the timer
-- the number of events (callbacks)
-
-timer_stats adds an entry to /proc: /proc/timer_stats
-
-This entry is used to control the statistics functionality and to read out the
-sampled information.
-
-The timer_stats functionality is inactive on bootup.
-
-To activate a sample period issue:
-# echo 1 >/proc/timer_stats
-
-To stop a sample period issue:
-# echo 0 >/proc/timer_stats
-
-The statistics can be retrieved by:
-# cat /proc/timer_stats
-
-While sampling is enabled, each readout from /proc/timer_stats will see
-newly updated statistics. Once sampling is disabled, the sampled information
-is kept until a new sample period is started. This allows multiple readouts.
-
-Sample output of /proc/timer_stats:

-initialized the timer and in parenthesis the callback function which was
-executed on expiry.
