Yes you're right. Please ignore the HPET comment.

1) This should be useful for a shared or virtualized environment where
the shared management infrastructure needs to charge each application
as accurately as possible for cpu usage.
2) An application that services different users and does some
cpu-intensive work may want to measure cpu time spent for each user by
the serving thread.

I think applications like web servers, remote database servers, etc.
fit into the second category.

For units of work smaller than a jiffy, this really helps as some
threads could potentially hide from the jiffy based accounting.

Please let me know if you want me to send the patch again with the
corrected description and added justification.
