Subject: [PATCH] sched/clock: expire timer in hardirq context
Date: Mon,  9 Mar 2020 18:15:29 +0000
Message-ID: <20200309181529.26558-1-a.darwish@linutronix.de> (raw)

To minimize latency, PREEMPT_RT kernels expires hrtimes in preemptible
softirq context by default. This can be overriden by marking the timer's
expiry with HRTIMER_MODE_HARD.

sched_clock_timer is missing this annotation: if its callback is
preempted and the duration of the preemption exceeds the wrap around
time of the underlying clocksource, sched clock will get out of sync.

Mark the sched_clock_timer for expiry in hard interrupt context.
