While I agree it would be nice to fix that particular issue
(it's unfortunately hard) slow clock sources in general won't go
away. They are also in lots of other platforms.

And even if you have a fast clock source not using it when you
don't need to is better. For example some x86s can be quite
slow even reading TSCs. It's much better than pmtmr
it's still is a expensive operations that is best avoided.
