That error factor (0x80000000) is as bad as it possibly can be. This means
that local_stime is running at least one second ahead of master_stime.
Probably the platform timer (which is used to compute master_stime) has gone
mad. In this case of course the platform timer is the ACPI PM timer.

I suggest instrumenting read_pmtimer_count() to see what value is getting
returned from there, to ensure it is monotonically increasing at about the
right rate. And also that it *is* actually getting invoked!
