There's a balance to be struck and I think that the difference between what people think the TSC will do (cheap, fast, reliable way to measure time) and what they get (rarely all, and often none of the above) makes the status quo acceptable. I wouldn't support actively blocking use of TSC, but it certainly makes no sense for the kernel folk to endorse it as this patch proposed.
