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?
