OK, now I was testing both your patches instead of mine.
The init_cpu_khz patch works as expected... THX!

Well, but the sched_clock() -> monotonic_clock() patch seems to have a
problem...
First, everything works smoothly if the PIT or the TSC clock are selected. (It
seems I cannot test the HPET timer due to missing hardware support)

But when booting with the PMTMR clock selected, my Interactivity test fails
again. :-( Maybe there is a problem in the PMTMR's monotonic clock part...?!
