Thats more than what I could have expected, thanks.

Ross, I tested my kernel with nmi_watchdog=1 and nmi_watchdog=2 getting only 2
to work.

output: nmi_watchdog=1

activating NMI Watchdog ... done.
testing NMI watchdog ... CPU#0: NMI appears to be stuck!

output: nmi_watchdog=2

testing NMI watchdog ... OK.

This is on 2.6.5-mm5-1.

Concerning the timer, well I tested it against my radio-controlled clock,
setting it with ntpdate first and letting the system run (with ntpd off) and
my system is kinda faster than my radio-clock. After about one hour my system
was off by +14s compared to the radio-clock. I don't know if that is pretty
shitty or simply normal for these bad pc-clocks...

I'm now compiling 2.6.6-rc1 with the nmi_watchdog=1 workaround. One question
about the C1idle-patch, does this add a new feature or is it just a
workaround for locked up nforce2-systems (since I never experienced lockups
on my system, I wouldn't need it then)?

thanks for now, christian.
