Subject: [PATCH] x86: Don't use tsc_khz to calculate lpj if notsc is passed.

x86: Don't use tsc_khz to calculate lpj if notsc is passed.

From: Alok N Kataria <akataria@...are.com>

With notsc passed on commandline, tsc may not be used for
udelays, make sure that we do not use tsc_khz to calculate
the lpj value in such cases.
