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 ?
