Subject[PATCH] x86_64: fix problems due to use of "outb" to port 80 on some AMD64x2 laptops, etc.
Replace use of outb to "unused" diagnostic port 0x80 for time delay
with udelay based time delay on x86_64 architecture machines. Fix for
bugs 9511 and 6307 in bugzilla, plus bugs reported in
bugzilla.redhat.com.

Derived from suggestion (that didn't compile) by Pavel Machek, and
tested, also based on measurements of typical timings of out's
collated by Rene Herman from many in the community.

This patch fixes a number of bugs known to cause problems on HP
Pavilion dv9000z and dv6000z laptops - in the form of solid freezes
when hwclock is used to show or set the time. Also, it potentially
improves bus utilization on SMP machines, by using a waiting process
that doesn't tie up the ISA/LPC bus for 1 or 2 microseconds.

i386 family fixes (completely parallel) were not included, considering
that such machines might involve more risk of problems on legacy machines.
