This seems to be from your clocksource declaring itself to be
unstable, and then scheduling work to safely remove that timer.
I haven't looked at this code before (in kernel/time/clocksource.c
under CONFIG_CLOCKSOURCE_WATCHDOG) since the timers on
arm64 and tile aren't unstable. Is it possible to boot your machine
with a stable clocksource?
