/*
* test module to check whether the TSC-based delay routine continues
* to work properly after cpufreq transitions. Needs ACPI to work
* properly.
*
* Based partly on the Power Management Timer (PMTMR) code to be found
* in arch/i386/kernel/timers/timer_pm.c on recent 2.6. kernels, especially
* code written by John Stultz. The read_pmtmr function was copied verbatim
* from that file.
*
* (C) 2004 Dominik Brodowski
*
* To use:
* 1.) pass clock=tsc to the kernel on your bootloader
* 2.) modprobe this module (it'll fail)
* 3.) change CPU frequency
* 4.) modprobe this module again
* 5.) if the third value, "diff_pmtmr", changes between 2. and 4., the
* TSC-based delay routine on the Linux kernel does not correctly
* handle the cpufreq transition. Please report this to
* cpufreq@www.linux.org.uk.
