Sorry for the late reply, but it turned out that all my old
links where broken. Well, some searching on the net ...

The module is called 'timewarp' and can be found here:
It currently only works for 2.0.n kernels but porting to
newer versions shouldn't be hard (i might have to do it
myself once i switch to 2.4.n).


P.S.: I cc this to the list in case it's of any interest
to the public.
