Subject[PATCH 2/2] Revert "x86/hpet: Reduce HPET counter read contention"
Date
This reverts commit f99fd22e4d4bc84880a8a3117311bbf0e3a6a9dc.

It's unnecessory after commit "acpi_pm: Fix bootup softlockup due to PMTMR
counter read contention", the simple HPET access code could be restored.

On a general system with good TSC, TSC is the final default clocksource.
So the potential performce loss is only at bootup stage before TSC
replacing HPET, we didn't observe obvious delay of bootup.

- * Reading the HPET counter is a very slow operation. If a large number of
- * CPUs are trying to access the HPET counter simultaneously, it can cause
- * massive delay and slow down system performance dramatically. This may
- * happen when HPET is the default clock source instead of TSC. For a
- * really large system with hundreds of CPUs, the slowdown may be so
- * severe that it may actually crash the system because of a NMI watchdog
- * soft lockup, for example.
- *
- * If multiple CPUs are trying to access the HPET counter at the same time,
- * we don't actually need to read the counter multiple times. Instead, the
- * other CPUs can use the counter value read by the first CPU in the group.
- *
- * This special feature is only enabled on x86-64 systems. It is unlikely
- * that 32-bit x86 systems will have enough CPUs to require this feature
- * with its associated locking overhead. And we also need 64-bit atomic
- * read.
- *
- * The lock and the hpet value are stored together and can be read in a
- * single atomic 64-bit read. It is explicitly assumed that arch_spinlock_t
- * is 32 bits in size.
