Magical.

If it was the first five minutes, I'd not be horribly surprised, because
we have a jiffies wrap at five minutes to try to find misuses of the time
counter. But an hour?

Just for fun, try changing include/linux/time.h, to make the

#define INITIAL_JIFFIES ((unsigned long)(unsigned int) (-300*HZ))

just be a simple

#define INITIAL_JIFFIES 0UL

and see if that makes any difference...
