cp is 64-bit clean (its timestamp handling is very simple) so this
really must be happening in the kernel somewhere.
Given that it appears to be machine-dependent, it's probably in the
timecounters somewhere, as it's pretty hard to get machine-dependent
behavior in filesystem code. Unless it's an endianness bug; but if so
I'd expect it not to appear on alpha.
