It didn't apply cleanly against vanilla 2.6.16; rediffed patch below.

Typical output:

time.c: Lost 12 timer tick(s)! rip 10:__do_softirq+0x4b/0xdf
last cli handle_IRQ_event+0x62/0x71
last cli caller __do_IRQ+0xa6/0x104

last cli handle_IRQ_event+0x62/0x71
last cli caller __do_IRQ+0xa6/0x104
time.c: Lost 4 timer tick(s)! rip 10:__do_softirq+0x4b/0xdf
last cli handle_IRQ_event+0x62/0x71
last cli caller __do_IRQ+0xa6/0x104
time.c: Lost 8 timer tick(s)! rip 10:__do_softirq+0x4b/0xdf
last cli handle_IRQ_event+0x62/0x71
last cli caller __do_IRQ+0xa6/0x104
time.c: Lost 3 timer tick(s)! rip 10:__do_softirq+0x4b/0xdf
last cli handle_IRQ_event+0x62/0x71
last cli caller __do_IRQ+0xa6/0x104

Some statistics:
