The previous value here i386 is 1000 --- so why is the default 250.

Changing the *default* time interrupt frequency in a stable series is
*really* bad idea if you ask me.

Now that this has hit mainline please consider applying:

--- kernel/Kconfig.hz~ 2005-06-24 22:16:35.023986593 -0700
+++ kernel/Kconfig.hz 2005-07-08 14:46:35.428917597 -0700
@@ -4,7 +4,7 @@

prompt "Timer frequency"
- default HZ_250
+ default HZ_1000
Allows the configuration of the timer frequency. It is customary
to have the timer interrupt run at 1000 HZ but 100 HZ may be more
