    SubjectPROBLEM: conflict between apm and system clock on Inspiron 8100

    I have found a problem with the use of apm on my
    dell inspiron 8100 running kernel 2.4.18-10. Any
    access to the apm kernel routine (for example cat
    /proc/apm) causes the system clock to run slow. About
    1% slow if I run the battstat applet in gnome. I
    suspect that somehow the clock interrupt is getting
    missed during the apm bios/kernel call. Looking
    though the apm.c I don't see how to fix this. I tried
    the switch apm=allow_int, but that showed no change.
    I have found some vague (don't mention apm) references
    to this problem on the web, but no solutions. Does
    anyone understand this problem?
