Hey guys...anymore info on this? I seem to have the same issue on my netbook. I also notice it during audio playback (will loop until interrupted). My screen also pauses until interrupted and I am losing time. It looks like the system enters an idle loop when this is happening.
System: Asus Eee PC 1201ha
Processor: Intel Atom z520

Ok, I think I fixed it...at least nothing is looping or pausing...yet. Do this in Fedora 17:
As root, backup /etc/default/grub
(I just copied it to /etc/default/grub.bkup
). Then add nohz=off
to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX line in /etc/default/grub
, like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" <...a bunch of stuff here...> nohz=off"
Next, backup /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
(Again I just copied this to /boot/grub2/grub.cfg.bkup
). Now run:
[root@localhost ~]# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
This will add nohz=off
to your kernel boot options. Reboot and enjoy.
