Thanks for the bug report!

Its odd, as I'm not seeing such behavior in my testing (using the
raw_skew or change_skew tests in kselftest/timers). Can you try
running those tests to see if they fail on your hardware?

From the bug report, it says it BYT specific, but I'm not sure what
that means. Are there any hardware specific details you can share?
What clocksource is being used? Can you send a dmesg log?

I'll look over the code again to see if I can catch anything by
review. Worse case if we can't get any traction on this in a day or so
I'll submit a revert.
