I took a quick look at time.c, (at the following code)

if (x86_capability & 16) {
do_gettimeoffset = do_fast_gettimeoffset;

if( strcmp( x86_vendor_id, "AuthenticAMD" ) == 0 ) {
if( x86 == 5 ) {
if( x86_model == 0 ) {
/* turn on cycle counters during power down */
__asm__ __volatile__ (" movl $0x83, %%ecx \n \
rdmsr \n \
orl $1,%%eax \n \
wrmsr \n "
: : : "ax", "cx", "dx" );
udelay(500);
}
}
}

/* read Pentium cycle counter */
__asm__(".byte 0x0f,0x31"
:"=a" (init_timer_cc.low),
"=d" (init_timer_cc.high));
irq0.handler = pentium_timer_interrupt;
}



I don't have my intel assembler reference manuals near me, but if someone
could just look up the actual byte code for rdmsr, and wrmsr, we should
just replace the offending instructions with appropriate ".byte ......" instructions,
like the on use to read the pendium cycle counter. Yes?
