| hm, how about the other caller to __setup_APIC_LVTT(), 
| lapic_timer_setup():
| 
|         case CLOCK_EVT_MODE_ONESHOT:
|                 __setup_APIC_LVTT(calibration_result,
|                                   mode != CLOCK_EVT_MODE_PERIODIC, 1);
|                 break;
|

| __setup_APIC_LVTT(), causing 16 times shorter timeouts than intended?

well, the last I would say :). That happened I sent first version of
patch instead of modified second version. Thanks a lot Ingo for catching
it! Oh my, sorry... Here is an updated version.

We use APIC_TDR_DIV_16 while setting APIC_TDCR (divisor).
It happened this moment is hidden from __setup_APIC_LVTT
caller. So we better increment caller 'clocks' value to
not change current behaviour and use APIC_DIVISOR
(as already done in 32bit version).

The main benefit - unified procedure code for 32/64bit modes.
