    One issue (tested the -rc4 Version on -mm):
    - on interrupt flood (ping -f) HZ goes down to 0-4 HZ.
    This matches "ticks to skip" below. Coincidence?

    - ping -f complains:
    .Warning: time of day goes back (-304us), taking countermeasures.
    ...
    .Warning: time of day goes back (-33us), taking countermeasures.

    Yet, system time _seems_ to be kept correctly.

    CPU is Pentium M.

    dmesg:
    Using pmtmr for high-res timesource
    dyn-tick: Found suitable timer: pmtmr

    dyn-tick: Maximum ticks to skip limited to 54
    dyn-tick: Timer not enabled during boot

    sysfs:
    suitable: 1
    enabled: 1
    using APIC: 0
