> The problem was introduced with a commit which tried to solve
> inconsistency between the hrtimer in the tick_sched data and the underlying
> hardware clockevent. It split out hrtimer_set_expires() to store the new tick
> time in both the NOHZ and the NOHZ + HIGHRES case, but missed the fact
> that in the NOHZ + HIGHRES case the hrtimer might still be queued.
> 
> Use hrtimer_start(timer, tick...) for the NOHZ + HIGHRES case which sets
> timer->expires after canceling the timer and move the
> timer->hrtimer_set_expires()
> invocation into the NOHZ only code path which is not affected as it merily
> uses the hrtimer as next event storage so code pathes can be shared with
> the NOHZ + HIGHRES case.
