Re: cvs commit: src/sys/i386/isa pmtimer.c

:JFYI: sometime around here, or soon before, an old problem resurfaced
:on my DragonFly box.  This is the problem, back from when the box was
:running FreeBSD:
:  http://makeashorterlink.com/?R2233514B
:It was just never a problem in DragonFly (until now.)
:I've tried both of these in /boot/loader.conf:
:  hw.i8254.walltimer=1
:  hw.i8254.walltimer=2
:with no change ('sleep 10' takes 5 seconds to finish.)  The only way
:I've found to correct the clock, so far, is to boot with ACPI disabled.
:I'm updating now to see if anything subsequent has already fixed it.

    Around that time we start using the ACPI timer for our timebase if
    it is present.  You can disable it by putting 'timer' in the
    debug.acpi.disabled kernel environment during boot.
