No my athlon XP on nforce2 chipset ran about 20% fast for a long time.
2.6.15 kernel seems to have now fixed it.  The ATI chipsets have been
known to run at double speed with many 2.6 kernels.

There have been timer speed issues with many nvidia and ati chipsets in
the 2.6 series kernels.  2.6.8 was fine on my system, and somewhere
around 2.6.10 or so it strated running fast.  Now with 2.6.15 the
problem appears gone finally.  Not sure if this fixes it on 64bit
systems.  I haven't had one of the systems where the system time is
wrong on 64bit myself.
