I suspect that systems where ACPI indicates that the clock speed may change as a result of power management events should set this automatically so people don't have to hack up their system with sysctl's just to get things to work, when it's well known that the system selecting TSC by default on systems with a variable processor speed will experience problems otherwise. I'm guessing what changes in the patches is that the default for preferred clock changed to the wrong thing. -- Terry _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
