Thorsten> Introducing PIC_TIC_RATE.

What's this meant for? At least for IA-64, there is zero guarantee
that there will be a timer ticking at this rate. There are some
machines where this is the case (the ones using Intel chipsets, I
believe), but it isn't true for most machines with non-Intel chipsets
(which are common).
