Okay. That¹s where Jeremy is going with the paravirt_ops patches (for x86
only right now, of course). Linux 2.6 now has dynticks (as of 2.6.21-rc I
think) which means the kernel can run tickless, which is nice when running
in a virtualised environment.

I¹ll give you back the old behaviour for now.
