Thomas,

Could you explain again why using the IO-APIC watchdog disables hrt?

It's not that simple. My app depends on hrt. I'd have to tweak it to
make it work when hrt are not available.

BTW, it's not a crash, it's a complete system lock-up. Nothing works,
and I really do mean nothing: ping is ignored, I can't open an ssh
connection, the serial console won't budge, even if I send SysRq combos...

I didn't enable dynamic-ticks kernel support.
