    Ok, that's what I eventually figured by looking at the code as well.

    Wait a minute, this is a new board. I had a suspicion, and I have a new
    suspect, can we investigate this?

    I have used the same kernel, with the VIA 686a patch, but left some
    config options out:

    # diff -U1 -Nur <(egrep -v '^(#|$)' linux-2.2.18-ma3/.config) <(egrep -v
    '^(#|$)' linux-2.2.18-try/.config)

    I rebooted, and since I left APM out, the system clock is alright since
    63 mins. Might the APM BIOS CPU IDLE calls be related? I did *not* enable
    CONFIG_APM_ALLOW_INTS. I'll investigate this right now and report back
    what I find.

    Where is the source for the adjtimex /program/? SuSE don't bring
