    SubjectRe: 2.6.17-rc1-mm1 - detects buggy TSC on GEODE

    FYI,

    as the 2 syslog extracts show;
    1. the new kernel is now detecting the buggy TSC on the GEODE-sc1100
    2. the bug is apparently correctable by passing 'idle=poll' on kernel
    boot-line.

    Heres one vendor's bug/erratta description:

    Its nice to see the buggy TSC detector detect, and the work-around work.
