I did have that patch in for my last report.
But i don't think he had (looking at the second part of his oops).

Then can you try following fix as well ?

Thanks !

Running now :)

[PATCH] timer: fix a race in __mod_timer()

lock_timer_base() can not catch following :

CPU1 ( in __mod_timer()
timer->flags |= TIMER_MIGRATING;
base = new_base;
timer->flags &= ~TIMER_BASEMASK;
                                  CPU2 (in lock_timer_base())
                                  see timer base is cpu0 base
spin_lock_irqsave(&base->lock, *flags);
                                  if (timer->flags == tf)
                                       return base; // oops, wrong base
timer->flags |= base->cpu // too late

We must write timer->flags in one go, otherwise we can fool other cpus.
