Amazing. I never found a multi socket box where the TSC's were in sync.

So the rotating watchdog triggers for a yet to figure out reason.

Oh, now that the pm timer seems to work again, can you try the following:

apply the reverted patch again and let the box boot. At some point the
TSC is marked unstable and is replaced by acpi_pm clocksource.

What result does timewarp.c show in that situation ?

Thanks,
