Ok so that part is just the watchdog triggering, so the below part is
the screwy bit:

And that looks like someone trying to cancel a timer from a timer, I
guess that won't work, seeing how cancel will wait for the timer handler
completion etc.

This is because of the fallback irq_work_run() in the tick
(update_process_times).
