Subject[RFC PATCH v3 17/21] x86/tsc: Switch to perf-based hardlockup detector if TSC become unstable
Date
The HPET-based hardlockup detector relies on the TSC to determine if an
observed NMI interrupt was originated by HPET timer. Hence, this detector
can no longer be used with an unstable TSC.

In such case, permanently stop the HPET-based hardlockup detector and
start the perf-based detector.
