that's such an enormous gamble it's not funny.


really; if your bios has broken trippoints we should use the kernel
commandline to disable them (and a dmi blacklist if the amount of
bioses that have it wrong is low.. maybe combined with a date based
threshold).

Just praying that p4clockmod keeps it kinda low enough is not the
answer.
