Subject[PATCH 1/5] x86/kernel: Add option that TSC on Socket 0 being non-zero is valid
Add a flag to indicate and process that TSC counters are on chassis
that reset at different times during system startup. Therefore which
TSC ADJUST values should be zero is not predictable.

v2: changed to assume TSC != 0 valid on all systems.
v3: changed to put back flag for above with a clearer name.
