Subject[PATCH 2/2] tick: Make sure tick timer is active when bypassing reprogramming
Date
So far we have run into too much troubles with the optimization path
that skips reprogramming the clock on IRQ exit when the expiration
deadline hasn't changed. If by accident the cached deadline happens to
be out of sync with the hardware deadline, the buggy result and its
cause are hard to investigate. So lets detect and warn about the issue
early.
