What this modification does is that:
- there is only one clocksource, which is now xenomai tsc, with a very
high rating;
- the tsc read code is written in assembly, and copied in the vectors
page, the one at 0xffff0000.

I think the ixp is a 32 bits free-running counter with match register,
wich is a configuration I tested. So, I would tend to think that the
issue is rather in the clock_events implementation.
