    Was -dyntick3 by the time I got there.

    The user/system/idle/wait numbers now look sane, with one caveat:

    static const ktime_t nsec_per_hz = { .tv64 = NSEC_PER_SEC / HZ };
    ...
    if (unlikely(delta.tv64 >= nsec_per_hz.tv64)) {
    s64 incr = ktime_to_ns(nsec_per_hz);
    ticks = ktime_divns(delta, incr);

    Even though I have CONFIG_HZ=1000, this ends up generating a synthetic
    count that works out to 100 per second. gkrellm and vmstat are happy with
    that state of affairs, but I'm not sure why it came out to 100/sec rather
    than 1000/sec.

    Also, it still disagrees with speedstep - it isn't noticing the TSC has
    gone slow and drop back to the PM timer.

    All in all, we're making progress. ;)
