A simple check for an overflow can resolve this problem. Using KTIME_MAXPrarit: Should this be tagged for -stable?
instead of the overflow value will result in the hrtimer function being run,
and the reprogramming of the timer after that.

Yes, this should go to -stable. cc'd.
I am a bit surprised that this patch has not found its way into mainline yet,
as everyone seems to agree that it is a candidate for -stable.
It just has to land upstream first, which is likely in the next week or
so when the 3.10 merge window opens. I'd have thought it would be sooner
but 3.9 is taking longer to close then I expected (and I didn't think it
was urgent enough to drop in at the last minute before the 3.9 release
