I am currently building a new kernel for the host system. It should 
finish later today. I'll then test the timekeeping system with a compile 
of glibc, which is likely to take a day or so. I'll let folks know if 
the CONFIG_HZ_100 option worked.

I would hate to have to 'nice' the process. An SBU equals about 150 
minutes. It takes long enough to compile without being 'nice'.

No, it doesn't seem to break the build. It's just annoying.
