I'm not happy about that churn. Why don't we simply scan the
clockevent_devices list for leftovers of the dead CPU ?
Untested patch below solves the same problem.
Hi, I have 3 bug reports about a clockevent failure while halting the system (188.8.131.52 kernel).
It exactly pinpoints to the line 262 which got changed with this patch merged to 184.108.40.206 (and also 220.127.116.11):
[4406.986777] kernel BUG at kernel/time/clockevents.c:262!
[4406.986777] invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP
[4406.986777] last sysfs file: /sysfs/module/ip_tables/initstate
All 3 systems have Pentium 4 processors with different clock speeds.
Here's a screenshot of the full stacktrace:
