After a bit more debugging it looks like the read just sometimes returns
a stale value:
[ 5248.749794] rcs0: 0: TIMESTAMP 75->123 (48) cycles [1013808ns]
[ 5248.749817] rcs0: 1: TIMESTAMP 202859->202859 (0) cycles [1031688ns]
[ 5248.749818] rcs0: 2: TIMESTAMP 409179->613179 (204000) cycles [1020234ns]
[ 5248.749820] rcs0: 3: TIMESTAMP 613227->825083 (211856) cycles [1059623ns]
[ 5248.749821] rcs0: 4: TIMESTAMP 825163->1036491 (211328) cycles [1057109ns]
So far it looks like doing a double read is sufficient to get
an up to date value.
