Your patchset does not apply to my tree for timers/core

These two patches described above are in the ARM tree, not available in
the timers/core tree.

The correct submission path for these would have been through timers/urgent:

timers/urgent -> v3.11-rcX -> arm-soc
                           -> timers/core

Or alternatively if it depends on material in arm-soc, a pull request
based in a v3.11-rcX where Olof and I can pull from.

I guess you have to rebase your patchset on top of timers/core.
