So the right solution (if nobody cares about this one) is to set
tick_no_hz_enabled global and disable it through:
arch/x86/kernel/quirks.c
is that correct?

I have no idea.
Richard's last message:
"I can help out as needed, just a work deadline I have to meet so I
haven't been able to dig further. Just point me in the direction and
I'll gladly be someones hands on the beastly machine"

has silently be ignored.

No, it is probably much older and I am pretty sure that it is not chipset
related, but related to the "Mobile" in the Mobile Sempron as this exactly
seem to hit 3500 and 3600 Mobile Sempron CPUs.

I can't help much further because:
- I have not such a machine
- I don't know these parts. I hoped to get some hints to help these guys
