Nope. Well, not quite ...

With both 

	'hpet=force,verbose clocksource=hpet'

removed, I end up with

	cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/available_clocksource
		tsc xen
	cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/current_clocksource
		tsc

But with 

	clocksource=xen

*explicitly* added

	cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/available_clocksource
		tsc xen
	cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/current_clocksourcexen
		xen

and in *console*, NOT dmesg, output,

	grep -i hpet tmp.txt

jiffies, now? hm. no idea where that came from. and why the 'tsc' ?

So I'm still unclear -- is this^ now, correctly "all" using MSI/HPET?
