schedule_timeout: wrong timeout value (A very poor bug-report)

This has happened with a 2.1.129 kernel, when the system clock was
accidently set to a wrong value.
The following message was sent by the kernel many-many times:
schedule_timeout: wrong timeout value 80000000 from c01121f5
The value was 80000000 most times, but sometimes it was something like
e0e12949, but different almost every time.
This is not the bug, this is the environment it has occured in.
The abnormal thing was that the system was told to halt, and it reported
the succesful unmounting of the filesystems. At the next boot it prompted
for lots of filesystem errors, and the fsck recovered them with a big
loss. But next time I mounted that filesystem with a stable kernel
(2.0.36) there was a flood of the same messages, and the filesystem went
wrong again.
That's it.
