moves at about 3x normal speed. A software clock need 3
seconds to advance 10 seconds, for example.
Everything else seems faster too, the keyboard autorepeat,
delay loops in games, and so on.

Does 2.6.18-rc4, or 2.6.18-rc3-mm2 have this issue
FWIW i looked through the x86-64 patch changes between
rc3-mm2 and rc4-mm1 and I can't find anything that would be remotely
related to the timer.
If it's confirmed to have regressed in this time it would require a binary search to track down I think.
