why are you insisting on fishing in the dark?

You are papering over the problem. That makes the warnign go away, but
does not explain anyhting about the root cause. Can you please provide
the information which was asked for?

This is complete nonsense because at the point where the CPU base is
initialized next_expiry _IS_ correct at the outer max. Why would it be
required to be recalculated? The only reason why it needs to be
recalculated is when a timer is canceled before expiry, but there is
_NO_ timer which can be canceled at this point.

So what are you trying to solve here?
