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):
Does .499 or later behave better?
mass update for old bugs:
Is this still a problem in the 2.6.9 based kernel update ?
I did not see a racing clock on x86_64 for quite a while.
