No. Haven't seen anything like this before with HPET.

The jump was

system | hardware(RTC)
15:48:43 | ven. 27 août 2010 15:48:44 CEST -0.985908 secondes
15:49:04 | ven. 27 août 2010 15:54:04 CEST -0.032800 secondes

We lost ~300 seconds and from dmesg
hpet0: 3 comparators, 64-bit 14.318180 MHz counter

Which is close to 2^32 HPET ticks. So, looks like we have some 32 bit
wraparound somewhere..

Thanks,
Venki
