Ingo Molnar provided the patch that solved the problem (the referenced
link) but he wanted to wait for Andreas Herrmann to provide an
additional patch that would solve some implication on AMD CPUs. So
this is in theory fixed, but the fix has not yet been applied anywhere
as far as I know.

the programmer was not looking is intellectually dishonest as it
disguises that the error is the programmer's own creation."
