Subject[PATCH 5/6] lguest use TSC
From
Date
James: Add rudimentary TSC-based clocksource support (based on Rusty's original
patch).
Rusty: Add rudimentary code to handle TSC changing. We can use the native
sched_clock again, we just have to tell it the TSC speed (get_cpu_khz).

(Note on benchmarks: Linux only sets the clock to the nearest second,
so expect it to be up to up to 1000000000 ns out. But the narrowness
of the max - min range indicates consistency.)
Before:
Approximate accuracy of clock: 827460500 (819802000 - 834640500)

After:
Approximate accuracy of clock: 326354500 (326257000 - 327937500)
