Losing timer interrupts on StrongARM SA1110

    When SA1110's OSMRx (timer match register) is set very short amount of
    timer ticks into the future, I suddenly lose all interrupts - both
    internal and external (GPIOx). All I know is that the OSCR (free running
    counter) continues to in such moment since I have activated the OSMR3 as
    watchdog to reset the processor and it worked after losing interrupts. I
    was not able to determine whether the processor continues to execute
    instructions or not.

    I have google'd for some information regarding the matter and all I have
    found was that the same problem exists on the PXA series also. No
    bullet-proof solution was ever mentioned, only the probability for this
    happening was improved at certain degree.

    Since I am forced to use the SA1110 in RealTime conditions with better
    than 99.999% availability I need to know whether there exists reliable
    solution for this problem or not.
