okay. just about every kernel-internals book i've read warns against 
fiddling with this, mainly because even tho it's supposed to be hardcoded
as a define, some people still make assumptions about its value.
things like the floppy driver (which probably doesn't really matter on
a server) and other things that try to do timing at a particular
granularity can often start acting weirdly. that said, as long as you
test this properly, i'd say it shouldn't cause too many problems, but
i'd do some research on the side effects (search the linux-kernel
mailing list, and other literature sets) people have noticed before i'd
rely on it.

still, it doesn't surprise me that much.
