[PATCH] x86-64: Try multiple timer variants in check_timer
Instead of adding all kinds of more quirks try various timer routing variants in check_timer. In particular this tries to handle quirks from: - Nvidia NF2-4 reference BIOS: wrong timer override - Asus: Wrong timer override but no HPET table - ATI: require timer disabled in 8259 - Some boards: require timer enabled in 8259 We just try many of the the known variants in the hopefully right order in check_timer. Trying pin 0/2 on Nvidia suggested by Tim Hockin. TBD Experimental. Needs a lot of testing Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de>
