    What's this meant for? At least for IA-64, there is zero guarantee
    that there will be a timer ticking at this rate. There are some
    machines where this is the case (the ones using Intel chipsets, I
    believe), but it isn't true for most machines with non-Intel chipsets
    (which are common).
