    Question is: who is holding interrupts off for so long?

    It might be better to implement a detection scheme inside
    the timer interrupt handler: if the time since last interrupt
    exceeds two ticks, whine and drop a backtrace.

    That backtrace will point up into the local_irq_enable() in
    the offending code, and we can go fix it?
