Subject2.6.13 SMP on Athlon X2: nanosleep returning waay to soon, clock_gettime(CLOCK_REALTIME...) proceeding too fast
After replacing the kernel on a fresh FC4 install with a stock 2.6.13
(using gcc 3.2) and my own config it appears that the clock is going too
fast: it gains at least an hour every 12 hours or so. FC4 kernel (rpm:
kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4) seems ok

I tried the following from another system with reliable clock:

for i in `yes|head -100`
do
/usr/bin/time -f %e rsh system_with_buggy_clock sleep 1
done | cat -n

annotated output:

I also ran the following script on the system with the unstable clock,
measuring timer interrupts per CPU as visible in /proc/interrupts:
