SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/8] Restructuring hpet timer generic clock interfaces
Date

My machine (SONY VAIO FS-215B) just hangs/freezes (no oops, no MAGIC_SYSRQ)
after writing "ACPI: Power Button (CM) [PWRB]" on screen

...
Machine check exception polling timer started.

System boots fine with hpet=disable and by the way, i tried the first version
of this patchset without a problem (if i remembered correctly, it was just
force detects the hpet but only enables for x86_64)
