Hi Scott,
I have a Laptop with APM. I removed the other #ifndef CONFIG_APM's and
the #endif's to get 2.1.102 to compile.
I then suspended and let it sit awhile, then did:
date ; hwclock
The two matched. (using apm-1.4)
It seems that this question was hashed over on the list.

patch-2.1.102 has this little gem embedded in it:

[patch snipped]
Is this correct? As far as I know, APM can slow or stop the processor
clock with impunity; thus those #ifdefs *really do* belong there, unless
some other means to conditionally disable do_fast_gettimeoffset is
available. I think that this portion of the patch should be reversed
