    SubjectSystem clock loses time at approx 17 secs per two hours
    First off, CC: back to me, as my machine can't handle an estimated 200
    messages a day for me to sign up to the list 8-( - Anyway..

    I updated my kernel to 2.4.3 when the patch was released. (Tarballs -
    wonderful things!)

    However, I noticed that the kernel timer loses seconds over time with both the
    2.4.2 and 2.4.3 kernels (seems to be at a steady rate...), and the rate of
    loss is NOT related to the CMOS clock. I compared against a 2.2.18 kernel,
    which lost about 1 second in 14 hours - about what I'd expect with my
    machine).

    Now, has anybody else noticed their 2.4.x kernel losing time? If so, and
    anyone knows how I can fix it so it behaves like 2.2.18, I'd be grateful.

    Can't say I like the April Fools release on "behalf" of Linus.
