So you're using a kernel over a year old...

No it wasn't:

$ git describe --contains fe79a9ba1196

It was merged during the merge window immediately preceding v3.15-rc1.

I think you'll have to do the research for that yourself... what
I can say is that TWD is capable of one-shot mode, and is capable
of running as a high-res timer:

Per CPU device: 0
Clock Event Device: local_timer
 max_delta_ns:   21691754031
 min_delta_ns:   1000
 mult:           425201762
 shift:          31
 mode:           3			<== CLOCK_EVT_MODE_ONESHOT
 next_event:     595603944000000 nsecs
 set_next_event: twd_set_next_event
 set_mode:       twd_set_mode
 event_handler:  hrtimer_interrupt	<== indicates that it's switched
					to high-res mode
 retries:        0
