Hi Yunhong --

Does this continue to grow?  I'm concerned that
the hot-added CPU might be skewing as well?
I didn't think this was possible with an Invariant
TSC machine but maybe something in the hot-add
isolation electronics changes the characteristics
of the clock signal?

Please try:

for i in {0..1000}; do xm debug-key t; sleep 3; done; \
xm dmesg | tail

then wait an hour, and see how large the warp is.
Hopefully the trend (407,444,525) is a coincidence.
