This is indeed the expected effect: mac80211_hwsim is using an illegal
clockid, and we're letting the world now about it. The obvious
workaround is the following patch:

diff --git a/drivers/net/wireless/mac80211_hwsim.c b/drivers/net/wireless/mac80211_hwsim.c
index 1620a5d2757d..0889fc81ce9e 100644
--- a/drivers/net/wireless/mac80211_hwsim.c
+++ b/drivers/net/wireless/mac80211_hwsim.c
@@ -2671,7 +2671,7 @@ static int mac80211_hwsim_new_radio(struct genl_info *info,
 
 	tasklet_hrtimer_init(&data->beacon_timer,
 			     mac80211_hwsim_beacon,
-			     CLOCK_MONOTONIC_RAW, HRTIMER_MODE_ABS);
+			     CLOCK_MONOTONIC, HRTIMER_MODE_ABS);
 
 	spin_lock_bh(&hwsim_radio_lock);
 	list_add_tail(&data->list, &hwsim_radios);

which suppresses the warning and preserves the current behaviour,
but doesn't provide what the author expected (the kernel never
pretended to support CLOCK_MONOTONIC_RAW though).

Thanks,

	M.
