I'll send the output with my next email after my buildworld is done. But
before I do the buildkernel, should I try the CLK_USE_I8254... option?
That's the message I get at the console: BIOS fooled with the 8254 - resetting
it. After I run X for a while, maybe after switching the video mode, I get
the message, and the clock runs at a super fast speed, about 3-5x normal.
