[PATCH 0/3] Improve TSC as a clocksource under VMware

From: Alok Kataria
Date: Mon Oct 20 2008 - 21:44:10 EST


This patch set makes some changes to the TSC code, so that it is always
used as the default clocksource when running under VMware.
The first 2 patches do the ground work of adding code to detect if we
are running under VMware.
The third patch adds a tsc_reliable flag which tells us that TSC is
reliable on this system, so that we can skip some tests which can
potentially mark TSC as unstable. Details under individual patch

Please have a look.
