    Hi!

    sleep_start is in seconds, right? I do not see how it could explain
    1hr10 difference... Please do not apply this.

    OTOH try this code (in userspace, run as root). It did strange thigs
    to my time, and it is unrelated to swsusp. (But it does similar weird
    things with interrupts).

    pavel@amd:~$ cat misc/latency.c
    void
    main(void)
    {
    int i;
    iopl(3);
    while (1) {
    asm volatile("cli");
    // for (i=0; i<20000000; i++)
    for (i=0; i<1000000000; i++)
    asm volatile("");
    asm volatile("sti");
    sleep(1);
    }
    }
    pavel@amd:~$
