Sorry, I got sidetracked and almost forgot about it.

So this is triggered by CPU hotplug. At some point the CPU has an
opportunity to go idle and for some reason the timer softirq is still
pending. We need to know which timer this is about and why the timer
softirq keeps pending.

I'm going to need your help again. Can you please run the following (possibly
repeat until it triggers the bug) ?

echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online

# Pause and reset tracing
echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/tracing_on
echo > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace

# Turn on relevant events
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/timer/timer_*/enable
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/irq/softirq_*/enable
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/tracing_on

# Trigger
echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online

echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/tracing_on

And please apply the following patch before. With all that I'll have the
relevant informations stored in /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/per_cpu/cpu1/trace
Please send its content to me. Thanks!
