clockevents: Sanitize min_delta_ns adjustment and prevent overflows
The current logic which handles clock events programming failures can increase min_delta_ns unlimited and even can cause overflows. Sanitize it by: - prevent zero increase when min_delta_ns == 1 - limiting min_delta_ns to a jiffie - bail out if the jiffie limit is hit - add retries stats for /proc/timer_list so we can gather data Reported-by: Uwe Kleine-Koenig <u.kleine-koenig@pengutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
