SubjectRE: Incorrect mdelay() results on Power Managed Machines x86
Date
Sounds like the TSC makes a lousy calibration method ;-)

I know on ACPI systems you are guaranteed a PM timer running at ~3.57 Mhz.
Could udelay use that, or are there other timers that are better (maybe
without the ACPI dependency)?
