hm, you still havent applied the other 4 patches i sent:

softlockup-fix.patch

softlockup-add-irq-regs-h.patch
softlockup-better-printout.patch
softlockup-cleanups.patch
softlockup-use-cpu-clock.patch

they are all necessary.

softlockup-use-cpu-clock.patch could easily solve the present problem
you have: as i pointed it out it is _wrong_ to use sched_clock(),
because sched_clock() is not a reliable clocksource. Especially on your
VAIO.
