Subject[PATCH] Added "Preserve Boot Time Support"
Date
This option enables Boot Time Preservation between Bootloader and
Linux Kernel. It is based on the idea that the Bootloader (or any
other early firmware) will start the HW Timer and Linux Kernel will
count the time starting with the cycles elapsed since timer start.
