My keyboard appears to have been invaded by gremlins.  That should have
been "suspiciously"...

And that should have been "clocksource=pit".  Sorry for the confusion.

Unfortunately, only my original question appears in the mailing list.
John Stultz replied privately asking for more information and the
output of dmesg, suggested I try the -mm kernel to see if it also had
the problem, suggested the "clocksource=pit" workaround, and then sent
me a patch to try for the -mm kernel.  When I reported that the patch
worked for -mm, he said he would "polish it up and send it to Andrew."
I asked if -mm could also be used with the -rt patch, since realtime
was important to me, but I didn't get a reply.
