    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
