SubjectRe: [2.6.33-rc1] System timer flooding bus on Lenovo Thinkpad W500 laptop in x86_64 - continues in -rc3

This is still happening in 2.6.33-rc2, 2.6.33-rc3 (just built). Setting
nohz=off stops the system timer from incrementing so rapidly.

0: 47 1 IO-APIC-edge timer

This issue is being tracked from
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14859

However, there are a high number of Rescheduling interrupts occurring. There
are still generic IRQ issues.

If the timer/irq folks have any patches for me to test, I'd be glad to try
them.

Thanks,
Shawn.
