If the messages:

probable hardware bug: clock timer configuration lost - probably a
VIA686a motherboard.
probable hardware bug: restoring chip configuration.

are really related to a VIA686A bug, why do they erratically appear on
Compaq ML370's, which use ServerWorks chip sets? Is there a common bug
between these chip sets? Seems unlikely.
