Urg. As far as I read the lockdep message it complains about this:
cpu_down tries to remove the workqueue, the workqueue tries to get
the clocksource_mutex, timekeeping_notify is called with the
clocksource_mutex held and tries to execute stop_machine which is
blocked because of cpu_down.
A solution would be to use a single-threaded workqueue, no?
