Make the timer management scale better across multicore

undid an optimization to the management of timeouts (to fix a bug, which is good). We should check how much this hurt performance, but it might be better to rewrite the timeout management altogether. The current scheme scales poorly to several cores. We should probably have one priority queue per core and use an efficient mutable data structure.
