Subject:  [PATCH] x86: Export tsc related information in sysfs
Date:  Fri, 14 May 2010 18:40:35 -0700
Cc:  Chris Mason <chris.mason@oracle.com>, linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org, Venkatesh Pallipadi <venki@google.com>, Dan Magenheimer <dan.magenheimer@oracle.com>

From: Dan Magenheimer <dan.magenheimer@oracle.com>

Kernel information about calibrated value of tsc_khz and
tsc_stability (result of tsc warp test) are useful bits of information
for any app that wants to use TSC directly. Export this read_only
information in sysfs.
