SubjectTime warp on 2.6.19-rc6-rt4
Hash: SHA1

Ingo/Thomas/John/et al,

I've seen sporadic time warp messages while running my pi_stress program
( The
frequency of time warp occurrences has been gong down over time, but I
just got one on a dual Opteron running 2.6.19-rc6-rt4:

- --------------
$ sudo ./pi_stress --signal
Starting PI Stress test
Test threads using scheduler policy: SCHED_FIFO

10 groups of 3 threads will be created
High priority: 97

Press Ctrl-C to stop test

The Current Inversions line is dynamically updated, but after I noticed
it had stopped updating, I looked a the console and found:

- --------------

Leftover inexact backtrace:

The system was still running, but in my test the timer wasn't updating.
This was actually one of Ingo's prepackaged kernel-rt rpms, so I don't
have much debug on.

Anything you want me to try?
