Not really.  The timecounters overflow to bizarre values if the boot takes
a long time (more than about 4 seconds), but there is no problem unless
something looks at the time before tc_windup() is working and expects the
time to be monotonic.  Previously mi_switch() looked at the time before
tc_windup() was called, and this was impossible to avoid because getting
to tc_windup() involved a context switch.  Now the misbehaviour should
only be visible using a debugger or debugging code that prints the time.
