Subject: [PATCH] x86, apic: Handle a bad TSC more gracefully
Date: Wed, 15 Oct 2014 10:12:07 -0700
Message-ID: <e2fa274e498c33988efac0ba8b7e3120f7f92d78.1413393027.git.luto@amacapital.net> (raw)

If the TSC is unusable or disabled, then this patch fixes:

 - Confusion while trying to clear old APIC interrupts.
 - Division by zero and incorrect programming of the TSC deadline
   timer.

This fixes boot if the CPU has a TSC deadline timer but a missing or
broken TSC.  The failure to boot can be observed with qemu using
-cpu qemu64,-tsc,+tsc-deadline

This also happens to me in nested KVM for unknown reasons.
With this patch, I can boot cleanly (although without a TSC).
