$ cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/current_clocksource
(That's from 2.6.26.)

I already did something similar. Did you see my follow-up mail?

I added:
+       if (unlikely(clock->xtime_nsec < ((s64)xtime.tv_nsec << clock->shift)))
+               printk("Negative result: %llu - %lld\n",
+                       (unsigned long long)clock->xtime_nsec,
+                       (long long)((s64)xtime.tv_nsec << clock->shift));

Which resulted in:
   Negative result: 166039808000 - 166039808256

Would you still like me to try your patch?
