Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-06-22 19:41:18 EDT
Description of problem:

On x86_64 machine wall clock races with a double of a normal

timers went south.  Backing off to 2.6.7-1.437 restores a sane

I did not notice this effect with 441 on i386 (Athlon SMP box)
but this is not the same hardware as used by x86_64 installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-11-27 17:35:04 EST
mass update for old bugs:

Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2004-11-27 20:39:58 EST
I did not see a racing clock on x86_64 for quite a while.
