    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...
