    That's odd, because Thomas's patch removed two calls to clock_was_set(),
    which is a no-op when CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS is not enabled (at least in
    the 2.6.21 source tree).

    Also, I personally tested with the reproducer you posted here, initially
    on a box running 2.6.22-rc4, and there were no problems (but I'm not sure
    what config options were enabled on that kernel). I did reproduce the
    problem on a stock 2.6.21 kernel with CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS enabled.

    Cheers. -ernie
