    WHAT?

    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 @@

    choice
    prompt "Timer frequency"
    - default HZ_250
    + default HZ_1000
    help
    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
