Not much because it doesn't know about my processor. About all I could
get out of it is that my MSRs are inconsistent, SMI latency is bad, and
the round-trip latency via MWAIT test gives elapsed time = 285ms with
229 iterations/ms.

device in periodic mode with the local ones in nohz; I guess your patch
answers my question.
