And on the off-chance that the following messages from this weekend's
runs are at all helpful. One interesting point is that starting at
time 4731.872311, there are repeated enqueues to CPU 5's timer wheel,
but CPU 5's ->clk does not advance. Things seem to advance at
time 4891.721190.

Thanx, Paul
