[PATCH] dynticks: fix hrtimer rounding error in next_timer_interrupt

The rework of next_timer_interrupt() fixed the timer wheel bugs, but
invented a rounding error versus the next hrtimer event. This is caused
by the conversion of the hrtimer internal representation to relative

This causes bug #8100:

next_timer_interrupt() returns "now" in such a case and causes the code
in tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() to trigger the timer softirq, which is
bogus as no timer is due for expiry. This results in an endless context
switching between idle and ksoftirqd until a timer is due for expiry.

Modify the hrtimer evaluation so that, it returns now + 1, when the
conversion results in a delta < 1 jiffie.

It's confirmed to resolve bug #8100
