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
below.

Subject: [patch] i386, numaq: enable TSCs again
From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
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 ...
