Ok. Good. Chris Wilson has created the following patch which should
hopefully resolve this issue. It would be great if you could try booting
with it to verify that there are no other problems lurking here.

Thanks again for the great bug reporting!

thanks

Subject: [PATCH] x86/hpet: Use the FSEC_PER_SEC constant for femto-second
periods

The current computation, introduced with f12a15be63, of FSEC_PER_SEC using
the multiplication of (FSEC_PER_NSEC * NSEC_PER_SEC) is performed only
with 32bit integers on small machines, resulting in an overflow and a
*very* short intervals being programmed. An interrupt storm follows.

Note that we also have to specify FSEC_PER_SEC as being long long to
overcome the same limitations.
