    High Precision Event Timer Driver for Linux

    -The High Precision Event Timer (HPET) hardware is the future replacement for the 8254 and Real
    -Time Clock (RTC) periodic timer functionality. Each HPET can have up two 32 timers. It is possible
    -to configure the first two timers as legacy replacements for 8254 and RTC periodic. A specification
    -done by INTEL and Microsoft can be found at http://www.intel.com/labs/platcomp/hpet/hpetspec.htm.
    -
    -The driver supports detection of HPET driver allocation and initialization of the HPET before the
    -driver module_init routine is called. This enables platform code which uses timer 0 or 1 as the
    -main timer to intercept HPET initialization. An example of this initialization can be found in
