Here the result on 2.6.25-rc6-00243-g028011e ( it was running 30++ minutes the time I was away for food =) )

...

4 CPUs, running 4 parallel test-tasks.
checking for time-warps via:
- read time stamp counter (RDTSC) instruction (cycle resolution)
- gettimeofday (TOD) syscall (usec resolution)
- clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC) syscall (nsec resolution)

| 1.46 us, TSC-warps:0 | 16.01 us, TOD-warps:0 | 16.10 us, CLOCK-warps:0

...

Gabriel
