Older 32-bit kernels keep time in a 32-bit value that wraps around.
(this performs better than 64-bit)

The information you desire is thus lost by the kernel.
Comment 2 Daniel Novotny 2010-03-30 04:14:56 EDT
No further updates are planned for RHEL3. As the bug is not present in RHEL4
and higher, we suggest to upgrade to later RHEL release. Closing WONTFIX
