I am now getting this quite reproducibly a few seconds into
the boot and the path is always similar. Depending on what modules
I am loading the source changes, but it is nearly always
a schedule_timeout with a following timer interrupt.

Disabling highres timers just changes the bug path but it happens
also in that case. I am using CONFIG_HZ_PERIODIC. I tried to disable
the serial console and several drivers to rule out some interference
but it did not change anything.

Freescale i.MX28, 3.12.15-rt25 + patches enabling the platform,
none of them touches anything in kernel/* or the MXS timer.
Up to now no freeze or other BUGs, it was always only this one.

I see that the relevant code was touched a few times in the last
few months, maybe there is still something lurking.

Hmm... how is it in the rt-case guaranteed that the timer interrupt
does not preempt someone trying to modify the timer? The run_local_timers
looks to have arrived via hardirq context. The spinlock in the tvec_base
is a normal one and spin_lock_irqsave does not disable interrupts
on rt, right?
