    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.
