I'm able to reproduce this locally, though I'm not sure it's a
redirection issue. 28be3f8f48cf ("kselftests: timers: set-timer-lat:
Add one-shot timer test cases") appears to have a regression where if
timer_create() fails due to missing CAP_WAKE_ALARM, do_timer() will
still try to run the test anyway.

Please revert 28be3f8f48cf and verify whether this fixes the problem for
you. If so, I'll send a V2 as soon as possible that fixes the issue.
(Basically, setup_timer() needs a discrete return value for unsupported
test cases.)

Sorry for the confusion.
