There's a kernel option for clock=pit that might help. I.e., add the
clock=pit to your kernel boot parameters then reboot.

Not sure if it applies here, but there are also lots of VMWare related
messages about clocks. They have recommended using a different
stepping algorithm to the kernel. If you google "Linux VMware clock"
there are quite a few hits.
