* This is the frequency of the timer used for Linux's timer interrupt.
* The value should be defined as accurate as possible or under certain
* circumstances Linux timekeeping might become inaccurate or fail.
* For many system the exact clockrate of the timer isn't known but due to
* the way this value is used we can get away with a wrong value as long
* as this value is:
* - a multiple of HZ
* - a divisor of the actual rate
* 500000 is a good such cheat value.
* The obscure number 1193182 is the same as used by the original i8254
* time in legacy PC hardware; the chip unfortunately also found in a
* bunch of MIPS systems. The last remaining user of the i8254 for the
* timer interrupt is the RM200; it's a very standard system so there is
* no reason to make this a separate architecture.
#include <timex.h>
* Standard way to access the cycle counter.
* Currently only used on SMP for scheduling.
* Only the low 32 bits are available as a continuously counting entity.
* But this only means we'll force a reschedule every 8 seconds or so,
* which isn't an evil thing.
* We know that all SMP capable CPUs have cycle counters.
