Bug#395247: [s390] System clock runs wild (in hercules emulator)



Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.18-2
Severity: grave

After booting my hercules emulator with 2.6.18, I noticed some errors during 
a packages upgrade, like:
tar: ./config: time stamp 2006-10-27 10:52:22.00126 is 4290.653417 s in the 
future

Further investigation showed that the system clock in running wild:
$ date
Fri Oct 27 05:36:58 CEST 2006
$ date
Fri Oct 27 05:41:40 CEST 2006
$ date
Fri Oct 27 06:25:24 CEST 2006
$ date
Fri Oct 27 09:01:09 CEST 2006
$ date
Fri Oct 27 18:19:04 CEST 2006

These 'date' commands were given within 15-20 minutes or so. Actual time 
when the emulator was started was around 2006-10-24 17:30.

After rebooting the emulator with 2.6.17-9, the problem was gone.

This series from a later boot with 2.6.18, taken within 2 minutes, is even 
crazier.
It shows the clock jumping all over the place (real time Oct 24, 22:30):
$ date

$ date

$ date

I'm running hercules 3.04.1 on an EM64T host system. The system clock on the 
host runs normally.
