[hrtimer] Enforce resolution as lower limit of intervals
Thomas Gleixner [Thu, 12 Jan 2006 10:47:34 +0000 (11:47 +0100)]
Roman Zippel pointed out that the missing lower limit of intervals
leads to an accounting error in the overrun count. Enforce the lower
limit of intervals to resolution in the timer forwarding code.
