    os: Fix timer race conditions
    Fixing following kind of race-conditions -
        ---->  // timers -> timer-1 -> timer-2 -> null
               while (timers && (int) (timers->expires - now) <= 0)
                   // prototype - DoTimer(OsTimerPtr timer, CARD32 now, OsTimerPtr *prev)
                   DoTimer(timers, now, &timers)
                   ----> OsBlockSignals();  .... OS Signal comes just before blocking it,
                                            .... timer-1 handler gets called.
                                                 // timer-1 gets served and scheduled again;
                                                 // timers -> timer-2 -> timer-1 -> null
                         *prev = timer->next;
                          timer->next = NULL;   // timers -> null
                          // timers list gets corrupted here and timer-2 gets removed from list.

  [nvidia-prime]Freeze while using touchpad

Status in X.Org X server:
  Fix Released
Status in xorg-server package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using Asus N43SL laptop as an example, with nvidia-prime installed, so
  the dedicated NVIDIA graphics card (GT 540m) is in use, once in a
  while, my screen will freeze when I use my touchpad.

  WORKAROUND: Use USB mouse.

  WORKAROUND: Uninstall nvidia-prime and use integrated graphics.

  WORKAROUND: Do a VT switch via Ctrl+Alt+F1 then Ctrl+Alt+F7.

  In the attached Xorg.0.log, you can see "synaptics: ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad: touchpad found" each time I did a VT switch and regained control:

  The following upstream report has a patch that addresses this issue:
