That's interesting. We have the same issue on x86 since 2007 and nobody noticed ever. It's basically the same problem there, but it seems that on x86 getting out of those low power states is way slower than the minimal reprogramming delta which is used to enforce the local timer to fire after the wakeup. I'm still amazed that as Jason stated a 1us reprogramming delta is sufficient to get this ping-pong going. I somehow doubt that, but maybe ARM is really that fast :) > Your patch fixes the retries on both CPUs on my dual core machine. So > you use my tested by if you need one.
