SubjectRe: HPET timer broken using 2.6.23.13 / nanosleep() hangs
I applied the patch to my 2.6.23.13 tree and upon reboot it stopped right after:

Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = ... ns)
Time: hpet clocksource has been installed.

It locked up hard.. cursor stopped blinking and SysRq isn't working either.
