SubjectRe: [patch 8/8] hrtimer: Avoid more SMP function calls in clock_was_set()

Thomas,

The base offsets are updated at

Cscope tag: hrtimer_update_base
# line filename / context / line
1 736 kernel/time/hrtimer.c <<retrigger_next_event>> (IPI handler)
hrtimer_update_base(base);
2 1617 kernel/time/hrtimer.c <<hrtimer_run_softirq>> (softirq handler)
now = hrtimer_update_base(cpu_base);
3 1645 kernel/time/hrtimer.c <<hrtimer_interrupt>> (hrtimer_interrupt entry)
entry_time = now = hrtimer_update_base(cpu_base);
4 1695 kernel/time/hrtimer.c <<hrtimer_interrupt>> (after tick_program_event failure)
now = hrtimer_update_base(cpu_base);
5 1768 kernel/time/hrtimer.c <<hrtimer_run_queues>> (sched_tick)
now = hrtimer_update_base(cpu_base);

Consider


hrtimer_interrupt
in_hrtirq = 1
__run_hrtimer
raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&cpu_base->lock, flags)
settimeofday
clock_was_set
lock cpu_base->lock
update_needs_ipi returns false
continue to process hrtimers with stale base->offset

No?
