    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.

    It works. I was wondering whether or not I should put the broadcast
    device in periodic mode with the local ones in nohz; I guess your patch
    answers my question.
