Most likely this was because the statclock got stalled. This has been
recently fixed in -current. A good way to test for this is to run "systat
-vmstat 1" and see if it says that "the alternate system clock has died".
If so, you should schedule a reboot since the process scheduler is
adversely affected. Alternatively, if you have DDB loaded in the kernel,
you might try entering ddb, running the "show rtc" command, and exiting
with "c" (continue). That might be enough to restart it.
