    I have no definitive answer, but I would strongly suspect we cannot
    rely on tick mechanisms with SMP.

    Unless Alpha's support different clock rate cpus mixed into a single
    machine, you can use something like Ingo's tick calibration code at
    boot time to make sure all cpu's have synchronized tick values.
