SubjectRe: Linux v2.6.18-rc5
Olaf,

This patch should fix it. The problem was that I was comparing a
32-bit quantity with a 64-bit quantity, and consequently time wasn't
advancing. This makes us use a 64-bit quantity on all platforms,
which ends up simplifying the code since we can now get rid of the
tb_last_stamp variable (which actually fixes another bug that Ben H
and I noticed while going carefully through the code).

This works fine on my G4 tibook. Let me know how it goes on your
machines.

Paul.
