I just did a hacky experiment by moving the tsc_init()earlier into
setup_arch() and remove the tsc_early_delay_calibrate(). The printk stamp
does start working much earlier!


But the __use_tsc and __sched_clock_stable are relying on jump_label,
which can't be used so early (I tried to call the jump_label_init() before
tsc_init(), but kernel crashs, and I worked around it for now).

Please review the debug patch, thanks!
