So I had access to a machine with NM10/ICH7 chipset and I failed to reproduce.
What machine is it you're using?

I fear you're my last resort. I suspect something is programming the clockevent
behind the tick. I thought it could be the clockevents switch code but I can't find
any issue there.

I see you have CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS=n. Could you try with it enabled?

For a quick rewind:

git reset --hard v4.10
git revert 558e8e27e73f53f8a512485be538b07115fe5f3c

Thanks!
