That's probably a misconfigured APIC. Kernel/hardware bug. Don't use
the APIC, or find a fix for your motherboard.

ACPI is probably irrelevant, although you never know with some BIOSes.

did the "noapic" kernel option fix your clock troubles?
So far, I have the following experience: Booting the kernel with parameters
'noapic' and 'acpi=off' => no problem so far
only 'noapic' => no problem so far
only 'acpi=off' => the kernel clock is not so fast, but after a while
it was stuck again
So apic is the first to blame, indeed. Could I help to further narrow what
is causing the problem ? Is it still can be a hardware and software
(kernel) bug ? Should I fiddle with the APIC kernel options one by one ?
