While hrtimer uses the clockevent for DEC reprogramming (if needed) and which calculate timebase ticks using the multiplier and shifter mechanism implemented within clockevent layer. It was observed that this conversion (timebase->time->timebase) are not correct because the mechanism are not consistent. In our setup it adds 2% jitter.
