Subject[PATCH 4.14 40/89] x86/tsc: Future-proof native_calibrate_tsc()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

commit da4ae6c4a0b8dee5a5377a385545d2250fa8cddb upstream.

If the crystal frequency cannot be determined via CPUID(15).crystal_khz or
the built-in table then native_calibrate_tsc() will still set the
X86_FEATURE_TSC_KNOWN_FREQ flag which prevents the refined TSC calibration.

As a consequence such systems use cpu_khz for the TSC frequency which is
incorrect when cpu_khz != tsc_khz resulting in time drift.

Return early when the crystal frequency cannot be retrieved without setting
the X86_FEATURE_TSC_KNOWN_FREQ flag. This ensures that the refined TSC
calibration is invoked.

[ tglx: Steam-blastered changelog. Sigh ]
