Bug description:
  [SRU Justification]

  In bug 1840239, HPET is disabled on some systems for they caused TSC
  being marked unstable while it is not. This caused an regression as bug
  1851216 that some systems may then hang at early, so a fix cherry picked
  back from v5.3-rc1. However, this fix also introduce yet another
  regression that some other users may hang at boot while PIT is diabled
  in the previous fix.

  Commit 979923871f69 ("x86/timer: Don't skip PIT setup when APIC is
  disabled or in legacy mode") from v5.6-rc1, also backported to v5.4.19
  and v5.5.3, fixes PIT setup in this case.

  [Test Case]
  Simply boot a patch kernel on systems affected and it shouldn't hang.

  [Regression Potential]
  Low. Stable patch and trivial backport.

  [Other Info]
  The same fix for bug 1851216 was also backported to Disco and Eoan, but
  they were then fixed with this 979923871f69 commit backported in bug
  1866858 and bug 1867051, which pulls v5.4 stable patches into Disco and
  Eoan correspondingly, leaving B/OEM-B the only victims so far.

  ========== Original Bug Description ==========

  After the update to install kernel 4.15.0-72-generic (a bit over a week ago) 
my computer will not boot. On boot, all I see is the purple screen with:
  Loading Linux 4.15.0-72-generic ...
  Loading initial ramdisk ...
  and nothing happens. Just sits there. I've waited about 5-10 minutes on 
occasion but to no avail.
  I've checked a number of logs in /var/log but not found anything.

  If I go into the advanced options and select kernel
  4.15.0-70-generic, the computer boots normally.
