clockevents: prevent endless loop lockup
The C1E/HPET bug reports on AMDX2/RS690 systems where tracked down to a too small value of the HPET minumum delta for programming an event. The clockevents code needs to enforce an interrupt event on the clock event device in some cases. The enforcement code was stupid and naive, as it just added the minimum delta to the current time and tried to reprogram the device. When the minimum delta is too small, then this loops forever. Add a sanity check. Allow reprogramming to fail 3 times, then print a warning and double the minimum delta value to make sure, that this does not happen again. Use the same function for both tick-oneshot and tick-broadcast code. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
