doing

cpu_base->softirq_next_timer = NULL;
expires_next = __hrtimer_next_event_base(cpu_base, active, KTIME_MAX);

instead would make it more obvious I think. I wasn't sure if it is a
typo and the timer assignment was meant to be after
__hrtimer_next_event_base() was invoked or if NULL was indeed intended.

If you replace the following block

with

if (expires == KTIME_MAX)
return;
if (!reprogram || !ktime_before(expires, cpu_base->expires_next)) {

/*
* ->softirq_next_timer was updated by __hrtimer_next_event_base()
* and we need to make sure that ->softirq_expires_next matches.
*/
cpu_base->softirq_expires_next = expires;
return;
}

then you have two bug less I *think*.

If *expires* is before ->expires_next then you don't want to return and
do nothing but instead you want to reprogram timer for the soft-timer
event.

And then even if *expires* is after ->expires_next then you need to
->softirq_expires_next. As the comment says, the next timer field has
been already updated. At this point, ->softirq_expires_next is set to
KTIME_MAX (due to the raise softirq part) so if this field is not
udpated here, then the hr-irq won't see the pending timer and expire it.
Even worse, if future soft-timer have a "later" expiry time then this
timer now then this field won't be updated at all and all soft-timer
processing will stall.
