    Jiffies and the first few adjustments are fine, it just compensates for
    the initial difference between NSEC_PER_JIFFY and TICK_NSEC.

    Ok, I see now the problem, the last cycle value is always at least 50
    times incremented between adjustments and that also means any error
    adjustment is applied at least 50 times, which quickly gets out of
    Is it possible that your console output is really slow? Otherwise I can't
    explain these numbers, everything looks initialized fine for a 1.6GHz
    clock, but it seems to take ages to print a single line.
    I have to run some tests and later this week there should be a new patch
    compensating for this.

    John, now I also know why your version survived this, it did the error
    correction in the update loop, this kept error small, but it also caused
    the time to jump around, since it changed the multiplier in the past.

    bye, Roman
