Sorry about that, I missed it. This is because context tracking initialization
when CONFIG_CONTEXT_TRACKING_FORCE=y is done too late. As a result, the user init
task can run with context tracking disabled when it is scheduled for the first
time and then later run with context tracking enabled due to the late initialization.
And this finally messes up the state of context tracking internal on CPU 0.

Anyway I fixed this by moving the context tracking initialization earlier, before
irqs are enabled and the user init task is created.

Please check out the branch "timers/nohz-v3".

Only commit "context_tracking: Ground setup for static key use"
which is now 65f382fd0c8fa483713c0971de9f1dfb4cf1ad9c has changed to integrate the
fix.

And following is the diff against the previous branch.

Thanks!
