    So then the PIT isn't going to work on that machine. Do you have HPET?

    Because if so, the most obvious choice would be to say:

    - on old machines, the PIT is likely more reliable than PM_TIMER

    - on new machines, the HPET is likely more reliable than PIT

    and there's actually a fairly obvious place to distinguish between old and
    new: if ti has a HPET, consider it a new one.

    But that just means that there's never any reason to use PM_TIMER anyway,
    and the proper patch would probably be to just ignore it. No?
