These are _atimers_, not timers.  An entirely different beast.  See
atimer.c.

Grep the C sources for start_atimer and turn_on_atimers, to see which
code uses atimers.  One such place is the poll timer used to poll for
user input (see keyboard.c), another is the hour-glass mouse pointer
feature shown when Emacs is busy (see xdisp.c).  We also turn them off
while waiting for input in wait_reading_process_output (see
process.c).
