    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.

    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 ...
