Sorry for the delay.

Yes, your patch in isolation (having reverted Peter's
c1955a3d4762e7a9bf84035eb3c4886a900f0d15) allows this box to boot
2.6.27-rc3 with CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME=y. As you noted, I did see some
oddities in the printk timings, where the values would go up then back
down, but nothing further out of the ordinary.


P.S. Should I start a separate thread on the messages I mentioned
earlier (but only in passing)?

Box seems fine even with those messages.
