kern.timecounter.choice: TSC(800) ACPI-fast(1000) i8254(0) dummy(-1000000)
Last box I had trouble like this on was K6-2/500 on Asus p5a mobo.
Setting to i8254 worked in that case. If you've not tried all the
possibilities, do so now.
I must also say that I *think* I had a box (around PII 200) that I
never got this resolved on (but I'm not sure how hard I tried....)
