So it's broken in anyway no matter whether
intel8x0_measure_ac97_clock() is called or not, right?
I'm afraid that something is wrong in VM, then. The driver has been
working over decades on thousands of real different boards.

Skipping the clock measurement on VM would be still useful,
independent from your problem, though.
