I think that C2/C3 are entered with IRQs disabled, but IRQ pending will kick
the CPU out of C2/C3 nonetheless. That CPU will then execute
hpet_broadcast_exit() before local_irq_enable() and hence the warning printk
will never actually fire. So it would be correct as a BUG_ON().

Is this correct, Wei?
