Subject-rt tsc frequency check
I'm not sure about this code. It's checking the PM timer, and
doesn't seem to touch the TSC, then it marks the TSC unstable
based on the stability of the PM timer.

The reason that this caught my attention is that it
marks my (AFAIK stable) tsc as unstable when it first
runs.

Is there something in here that I'm missing?
