Subject[PATCH] [102/275] x86: Add IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
Commit: e82b8e4ea4f3dffe6e7939f90e78da675fcc450e upstream

This patch adds IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING option on x86 and runtime enables it
when TSC is enabled.

This change just enables fine grained irq time accounting, isn't used yet.
Following patches use it for different purposes.
