The problem is that hrtimer_interrupt_hanging decreases min_delta_ns.
(Initially it's 61036.)

I talked to jstultz on irc and both of us are unsure if asserting that
min_delta_ns isn't decreased in hrtimer_interrupt_hanging is enough or
if there is another problem.

Bo, can you please apply the patch below, pass the kernel parameter
ftrace_dump_on_oops (or alternatively do 

	# echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/ftrace_dump_on_oops

), reproduce the problem and send the resulting oops?

Best regards
