686 kernel wastes CPU power

I just ran a dapper update a few days ago, and at the same time I switched
to the 686 kernel (had been running 386 kernel). After the update I noticed
a huge hit to my CPU usage (sucking down my battery life). Just sitting in
gnome with a terminal running top could take 11% and running the system
monitor would take 40%. I went back to the 386 kernel (the newest dapper
one) and those numbers dropped to 0.1% and 5% respectively.
Anybody have any clues?
