Subject[PATCH 4.19 032/114] timer: Read jiffies once when forwarding base clk
Date
From: Li RongQing <lirongqing@baidu.com>

commit e430d802d6a3aaf61bd3ed03d9404888a29b9bf9 upstream.

The timer delayed for more than 3 seconds warning was triggered during
testing.

Workqueue: events_unbound sched_tick_remote
RIP: 0010:sched_tick_remote+0xee/0x100
...
Call Trace:
process_one_work+0x18c/0x3a0
worker_thread+0x30/0x380
kthread+0x113/0x130
ret_from_fork+0x22/0x40

The reason is that the code in collect_expired_timers() uses jiffies
unprotected:

if (next_event > jiffies)
base->clk = jiffies;

As the compiler is allowed to reload the value base->clk can advance
between the check and the store and in the worst case advance farther than
next event. That causes the timer expiry to be delayed until the wheel
pointer wraps around.

Convert the code to use READ_ONCE()
