First, I could reproduce this issue. thanks. Second, actually, this issue is not
cause by race. This just occur by timer initialization mistake. I'll show you
the smallest fix.

POSIX says,

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


but your posix_cpu_timer_set() and posix_cpu_timer_get() are not consistent. 
I'm worry
about this.
