    Damn. I was looking at the 2.3.51 source. The pleasures of fiddling
    with a kernel which is on the other end of a dialup connection.

    I see now that if the CPU has a timestamp counter the loops_per_sec is
    in fact cpu cycles per sec and is hence higher.

    Is this a plot to make people think 2.4 is faster?
