I don't know if gettimeofday() and dmesg's logging facility use the same
time source, but I'm seeing jumps into the past:

[ 11.010300] ACPI: SSDT 3F6D3F27, 01C6 (r1 PmRef Cpu0Cst 3001 INTL 20050624)
[ 9.344283] ACPI: CPU0 (power states: C1[C1] C2[C2] C3[C3])

[ 11.013089] ACPI: CPU1 (power states: C1[C1] C2[C2] C3[C3])

and the future:
