One thing I found surprising was that a cpu's rt-bandwidth renewal could be
dependant on another cpu's (rt-bandwidth) timer firing ontime. In this case, we
had migration/23 pulled over to CPU0 and we hung later waiting for migration/23
to exit. migration/23 was not exiting because it could not run on CPU0 (as
CPU0's rt-bandwidth had expired). This situation remained forever. I would have
expected CPU0's bandwidth to have been renewed independent of some timer on
CPU23 to fire - maybe I am missing something not obvious in the code?
