    yes, that's the 10 second softlockup timeout.

    does the patch below help? We initialized the timestamps to 0, but with
    jiffies starting out negative, that means a ~5 minutes gap until we
    first reach a value of 0. That would explain the messages. The only
    thing it doesnt explain, why did this only trigger on your box?
