it's a backport candidate, but i think we should wait a bit with that,
until after .27-rc5 or -rc6, to make sure there are no side-effects.

The upstream commit is:

commit a2bd7274b47124d2fc4dfdb8c0591f545ba749dd
Author: Yinghai Lu <>
Date: Mon Aug 25 00:56:08 2008 -0700

x86: fix HPET regression in 2.6.26 versus 2.6.25, check hpet against BAR, v3

btw., are both of your systems that were hanging fixed by this commit?
