Apparently you have KTR enabled (not the default in GENERIC).  I think
WITNESS+KTR already caused nasty recursion from the mtx_lock_spin, and
we now get an endless loop when nanotime() is called with an invalid
timecounter in the following call chain:

    tc_init -> tc_windup -> tco_delta -> i8254_get_timecount -> mtx_foo ->
    witness_foo -> ktr_foo -> nanotime,

just after nanotime has somehow recursed back into i8254_get_timecounter
without causing endless recursion!

Try setting MTX_NOWITNESS in the initialization of clock_lock in
