  Modified files:
    sys/i386/isa         clock.c 
    sys/kern             kern_systimer.c 
    sys/sys              globaldata.h 
  Fix a bug where the main system clock stops operating.  We were using a field
  in the globaldata structure called gd_nextclock to determine whether a systimer
  was queued for a cpu.  This field indicated the next pending timeout for the
  systimer on the cpu.  However, at 8254 rates this 32 bit field has a chance of
  calculating to 0 once every 1/18 second, which disables the systimer dispatch
  on that cpu and can cause the system clocks to stop operating.
  Remove the field and replace with a TAILQ_FIRST queue check instead.
  The machine dependant part of the systimer implementations needs a better
  way to figure out which cpus to dispatch to.
