Actually someone reported me a very similar issue than yours lately. It's probably
the same. And I have a potential fix.

The scenario is a bit tricky again, and still theoretical. If you're interested in gory details:
a tick which is scheduled at jiffies = N + 1, in order to expire a timer_list timer, fires a
tiny bit too early (ie: very few microseconds in advance). So it doesn't update the jiffies on irq entry
and still sees jiffies = N. The timer_list timer doesnt expire yet and on IRQ exit we reschedule
the tick at the same time. But we see that ts->next_tick already has that value, therefore
we don't reprogram it again, leaving the clockevent unprogrammed.

So in case you have the time and opportunity to test the fix, you'll need to:

1) Revert back to the offending change:
git revert 558e8e27e73f53f8a512485be538b07115fe5f3c

2) Apply a delta fix:

Thanks!
