Subject[PATCH] boot time parameter to turn of TSC usage
From
Date
For machines that don't want to cooperate and have bad TSC counter and/or
change CPU frequency without change support.

This fixes the problem on Jerry Cooperstein's PIII laptop.
Could be useful for other people and tech support situations.

Please consider applying.
Thanks
Steve
