    Does the following patch by John Stultz fix the problem?

    Subject: [PATCH] x86-64: Fix bad assumption that dualcore cpus have synced

    This patch should resolve the issue seen in bugme bug #5105, where it
    is assumed that dualcore x86_64 systems have synced TSCs. This is not
    the case, and alternate timesources should be used instead.

    For more details, see:
