I've been seeing reverse time jumps on a non-SMP sparc today
on the order of 1/100 of a second. This is running 2.1.34.
I thought it was a sparc problem, since we were previously getting
reverse time jumps of up to 1 second on the sparc, but it may
be some other problem revealing itself. Just a data point.
