Bugger, just noticed that never went to the list... see below.

Was reported to not work sufficiently well, now fighting my Core2 box
that hasn't been booted/updated in ages.

Subject: sched/clock,x86/tsc: Improve clock continuity for stable->unstable transition
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>
Date: Thu Apr 13 14:56:44 CEST 2017

Marta reported that commit:

7b09cc5a9deb ("sched/clock: Fix broken stable to unstable transfer")

appeared to have broken things on a Core2Duo machine. While that patch
is in fact correct, it exposes a problem with commit:

5680d8094ffa ("sched/clock: Provide better clock continuity")

Where we hoped that TSC would not make big jumps after SMP bringup. Of
course, TSC needs to prove us wrong. Because Core2 comes up with a
semi-stable TSC and only goes funny once we probe the idle drivers,
because Core2 stops TSC on idle.

Now we could of course delay the final switch to stable longer, but it
would be better to entirely remove the assumption that TSC doesn't
make big jumps and improve things all-round.

So instead we have the clocksource watchdog call a special function
when it finds the TSC is still good (there's a race, it could've
gotten bad between us determining it's still good and calling our
function, do we care?).

This function then updates the __gtod_offset using sane values, which
is the value needed for clock continuity when being marked unstable.
