Delay between the counter hitting zero and the ISR firing is
architecturally permitted (the interrupt must be recognized in finite
time or at a context synchronizing event, but not necessarily at the
same 'clock tick' that the counter hits zero). If you want to ensure
that an interrupt has been taken before you read the counter value, you
need to use an ISB instruction in your loop.

(There are also some buggy behaviours in our systick device
implementation, but in this case I don't think you're running into
them.)

Title:
  ARM M: Systick first wrap delayed (qemu-timers/icount prb?)

Status in QEMU:
  New

Bug description:
  When running this kind of code with qemu:

  static void SysTickISR(void)
  {
        printf("SysTick\n");
  }

  void main()
  {
        volatile int i, j;
        printf("setup timer\n");
        *(uint32_t*) 0xE000E014 = 0x8FFFFF; //reload value
        *(uint32_t*) 0xE000E018 = 0;        //force reload
        *(uint32_t*) 0xE000E010 = 7;        //cpu clk + ISR + enable 

        for (j = 0; j < 0x100; j++) {
                for (i = 0; i < 0x100000; i++)
                        ;
                printf("cnt %08x  -- %8x\n", *(uint32_t*) 0xE000E018, 
*(uint32_t*)0xE000E010);
        }
  }

  I get the following output (comments added after '#'):

  Not working with git tag 2.10.0 (almost same config)

  Working with stock qemu-arm 2.5.0 from Ubuntu 16.04.

  I started investigating, though I am not familiar with qemu code and I
  could see that the execution is not geting out of
  qemu_tcg_rr_cpu_thread_fn() 'while' loop and timers are not triggered
  because the values in cpu->icount_extra or cpu->icount_budget are not
  to modified accordingly after the timer is set (host side) when the
  systick register is written (target side).
