Subject: [patch 19/46] Mark TSC on GeodeLX reliable
Date: Tue, 23 Jan 2007 22:01:15 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070123211205.698829000@localhost.localdomain> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070123211159.178138000@localhost.localdomain>

[-- Attachment #1: clocksource-i386-tsc-mark-reliable-on-geode.patch --]
[-- Type: text/plain, Size: 2515 bytes --]

From: Marcelo Tosatti <marcelo@kvack.org>

>From what I can tell the Geode can safely use the TSC for highres, since:

1) Does not support frequency scaling,
2) The TSC _does_ count when the CPU is halted. Furthermore, the Geode
supports a mode called "suspension on halt", where Suspend mode (which
interacts with the power management states) is entered. TSC counting
during suspend mode is controlled by bit 8 of the Bus Controller
Configuration Register #0 (thanks Tom!).
3) no SMP :)

Check if "RTSC counts during suspension" and remove the requirement for
verification, so the clocksource code can safely select it as an timesource
for the highres timers subsystem.
