Pavel does your test system have a Local APIC? If so that may also explain
why you didn't see a difference.

Tony, something like the following for oneshot should work, untested of
course. Perhaps you could use that for the wakeup interrupt instead?

void setup_oneshot_apic_timer(unsigned int count)
{
unsigned int lvtt, tmp_value;
unsigned long flags;

count *= calibration_result;
local_irq_save(flags);
lvtt = ~APIC_LVT_TIMER_PERIODIC | LOCAL_TIMER_VECTOR;
apic_write_around(APIC_LVTT, lvtt);
tmp_value = apic_read(APIC_TDCR);
apic_write_around(APIC_TDCR, (tmp_value
& ~(APIC_TDR_DIV_1 | APIC_TDR_DIV_TMBASE))
| APIC_TDR_DIV_16);

apic_write_around(APIC_TMICT, count/APIC_DIVISOR);
local_irq_restore(flags);
}
