[snip]

So I deactivated the PM timer again and my computer is much faster
again. Haven prime in the background taking 100% doesn't noticeable
affect deskop performance. But I think I know where the problem lies:

current: c0499a60
current->thread_info: c0528000
Initializing CPU#0
PID hash table entries: 4096 (order 12: 32768 bytes)
Detected 2004.698 MHz processor.
Using tsc for high-res timesource


In above dmesg you can see that nothing was used as timesource, but here
in current dmesg tsc is used. Is this normal or a bug? Need I pass a
kernel paramtere when pm timer is enbaled?

bye
