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

and some processes says

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.
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
