Subject[PATCH] fix hrtimer_enqueue_reprogram race
Date
From: leonid Shatz <leonid.shatz@ravellosystems.com>

it seems like hrtimer_enqueue_reprogram contain a race which could result in
timer.base switch during unlock/lock sequence.

See the code at __hrtimer_start_range_ns where it calls
hrtimer_enqueue_reprogram. The later is releasing lock protecting the timer
base for a short time and timer base switch can occur from a different CPU
thread. Later when __hrtimer_start_range_ns calls unlock_hrtimer_base, a base
switch could have happened and this causes the bug

Try to start the same hrtimer from two different threads in kernel running
each one on a different CPU. Eventually one of the calls will cause timer base
switch while another thread is not expecting it.

This can happen in virtualized environment where one thread can be delayed by
lower hypervisor, and due to time delay a different CPU is taking care of
missed timer start and runs the timer start logic on its own.
