Subject[patch] i386, numaq: enable TSCs again

Andi, Andrew, do you remember why we disabled TSCs on NUMAQ? It was
slightly async between CPUs, right? In that case we should try the patch


Subject: [patch] i386, numaq: enable TSCs again
From: Ingo Molnar <>
enable TSCs on NUMAQ again. sched_clock() got improved and
the scheduler treats it as a per-CPU clock, so there should
be no issues from the slightly async TSCs on NUMAQ. Please
holler if this is wrong ...
