SubjectRe: [PATCH V3]hrtimer: Fix a performance regression by disable reprogramming in remove_hrtimer
it seems the IPI issue got root cause (cpu hardware errata ) now ?
I only catch some pieces of the mails, is that to say the crazy horse
made by Intel will wake up unexpected, and eat too much reschedule
IPI, then the horse got hotter, performance down, and so the fix would
be a 'CFLUSH' to all the buggy CPU, is that right ?
