(maybe off topic ?)

While I was testing cpu-hotplug  (2.6.18-git tree), mistakenly I hot-plugged
	Booted with : Itanium2 1.6GHz
	Hot-added   : Itanium2 1.5GHz

What happend was ...hrtimer delayed.
timers based on jiffies (ex. select()) worked well but timer based on hrtimer
can't work. For example, sleep(1) sleeps very long..

Mixed-cpu system works well in other environment ?
