Subject2.6.16-rc2 powerpc timestamp skew
Date
Hi folks,

When running a 2.6.16-rc2 kernel on a powerpc system (Mac Mini;
Freescale 7447A):

$ date && touch f && ls -l f && rm -f f && date
Sun Feb 12 12:20:14 GMT 2006
-rw-r--r-- 1 rleigh rleigh 0 2006-02-12 12:23
Sun Feb 12 12:20:14 GMT 2006

Notice the timestamp is 3 minutes in the future compared with the
system time. "make" is not a very happy bunny running on this kernel
due to every touched file being 3 minutes in the future.

When the same command is run on 2.6.15.3:

$ date && touch f && ls -l f && rm -f f && date
Sun Feb 12 14:27:27 GMT 2006
-rw-r--r-- 1 rleigh rleigh 0 2006-02-12 14:27
Sun Feb 12 14:27:27 GMT 2006

In this case the times are identical, as you would expect.

In both these cases, the chrony NTP daemon is running, if that might
be a problem.


Regards,
Roger
