There's your answer - kernel bug specific to your hardware.

Try downgrading your kernel to an earlier release, and see if the timer
(and other issues) disappear.

OK, I downgraded to 2.6.12 and let it run overnight.

When I got to work, I found that X-windows had failed to start after
downgrading to the 2.6.12 kernel.  So I tried 2.6.14 and noticed that
udev failed to start.  So I had to bring the kernel back to 2.6.16.  I
compiled without ACPI and APM support and I'm trying
that now.  I guess I'll have to learn how to downgrade udev before
trying an older kernel.

Is the timer behavior I'm seeing definitely a kernel bug?  Or should
I continue my effort of trying older kernels before filing a bugzilla
report on the fc5 kernel?
