This fixed it for me:

In standard 2.6 kernels, the timer interrupt rate is fixed at kernel
compile time and cannot be changed by command line parameters. You can,
however, recompile your kernel with a lower timer interrupt rate. See
the documentation for your Linux distribution for detailed instructions
on how to build and run a custom kernel. Before recompiling the guest
kernel, locate the following line in /usr/src/linux-2.6/include/asm-
    #define HZ 1000
Change the value of HZ to 100: 
    #define HZ 100
