Check what your kernel thinks about the CPU cycle frequency
(cat /proc/cpuinfo).  If it doesn't look right, try a newer kernel, and
if it still doesn't help, add cycle=166000000 parameter to the boot
command.  (IIRC, 2.0.36 doesn't support this option.)
Or, if you simply reboot, it might just work...
