Can you please keep the TSC code in one block and the HPET block in the
next one? Having this inbetween is really bad to follow.

It really does not matter whether you read the HPET counter before or after
the calculation. This is a crystal ball estimation anyway so a few cyles
more or less are completely irrelevant.
