The guilty patch is:

Up to and including the previous patch,
wich is ntp-move-all-the-ntp-related-code-to-ntpc-fix.patch,
everything is fine. But apply this one, and
time moves at 3x speed. This makes games interesting,
and the keyboard autorepeat awesome. :-)

The patch found seems reasonable, it is
definitely time-related.

Thanks to all who sent a tutorial on quilt bisection!
