Subject[PATCH v9 08/12] x86/ioapic: Refactor the delay logic in timer_irq_works()
Date
Kernel use timer_irq_works() to detects the timer IRQs. It calls
mdelay(10) to delay ten ticks and check whether the timer IRQ work
or not. The mdelay() depends on the loops_per_jiffy which is set up
in calibrate_delay(). Current kernel defaults the IRQ 0 is available
when it calibrates delay.

But it is wrong in the dump-capture kernel with 'notsc' option inherited
from 1st kernel option. dump-capture kernel can't make sure the timer IRQ
works well.

The correct design is making the interrupt mode setup and checking timer
IRQ works in advance of calibrate_delay(). That results in the mdelay()
being unusable in timer_irq_works().

Preparatory patch to make the setup in advance. Refactor the delay logic
by waiting for some cycles. In the system with X86_FEATURE_TSC feature,
Use rdtsc(), others will call __delay() directly.

Note: regard 4G as the max CPU frequence of current single CPU.
