Counting on the time stamp counter

I hope they fix the bug that soft locks my kernel for 2 minutes when somebody contacts me via Skype in the process (Skype forums and LKML), as someone said it was potentially HPET/TSC related.

This DoS attack does not seem to be of much interest to kernel developers though, so I won't hold my breath! I guess that puts me in the 1/5th who are impacted by a kernel bug then...

Interesting, I've been seeing soft-locks for months as well. Oddly enough though almost nothing else responds on my laptop (basically only the keyboard lamp), toggling volume up and down will sometimes pop it out of lockup immediately.
