hrtimer: Update hrtimer base offsets each hrtimer_interrupt
This breaks resume on the iBook G4 and Toshiba Portege R500 (at least), by
adding an excessive delay to it (the Toshiba box sometimes hangs hard during
resume from system suspend). According to Andreas
"Apparently during or before noirq resume the system is hanging by the same
amount of time as the system was sleeping."
which seems to agree with my observations.
Given that the two known-affected boxes are so different, it is quite probable
that the total number of affected systems is actually quite high.
To everyone involved: the fact that this change, which was likely to introduce
regressions from the look of it alone, has been pushed to Linus (an to -stable
at the same time!) so late in the cycle, is seriuosly disappointing.

when I booted 1st into Linux-3.5-rc7 (a few hours after release) I had
a call-trace in get_next_timer_interrupt() (NULL pointer dereference)
The machine got frozen.
I can't say if this is related to the same issue here, but I can
confirm after suspend + resume the machine (sandy-bridge ultrabook) I
am working on is in an unusable state.
I had to cold reboot/restart.

P.S.: Unfortunately, I could not reproduce the NULL-deref again.
Thomas gave me some instruction to enable some debugobjects
kernel-options (see attached backlog from IRC).
John asked me on IRC to send my kernel-config and to clarify about my
experiences with the NULL-deref I saw in get_next_timer_interrupt():
I only saw it once - even after several bootups/bootins - as said at
the very beginning - the machine was unusable - hard reset.
Unfortunately, I had no digicam around to take a screenshot.
