The clock on the MVME5500 seems to be off by a factor of 150.  In the 
"ticker" test it is taking 750 seconds instead of 5 seconds for the 
displays of the times.  I started fiddling constants in bspstart.c but 
then reading the I2C bus started to fail so I decided I had to look 
through things and get an overview and not continue ignorantly.

I'm looking through it now, but if anyone has hints based on knowledge 
of the PPC decrementer and the PPC board support packages and how they 
support the clock (or maybe changes that went into 4.7?) on where I 
should look I'd appreciate it.
