I can't help, but using r4k clocksource with changing frequency is
probaly only usefull as a random generator. So IMHO the only two
options are disabling it or implement what arch/x86/kernel/tsc.c does.


Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessarily a
good idea.                                                [ RFC1925, 2.3 ]
