These are the highest I've seen, but that's possibly because I haven't
left the system running for longer. There's just under an hour between
the messages (kern.log has 00:59:17, 01:56:38, 02:51:23 for the three
increases listed above) with the first fairly shortly after boot.

I've just awakened the laptop from suspend and will let it sit for the
rest of the day. If I get any higher values I'll let you know.
