incremental patch (474091 comment #40)
RH QA captured the problem when testing the NONSTOP_TSC feature with 32-bit kernel. She found the clock source under sys fs is still HPET on hp-xw8800-01.rhts.bos.redhat.com.
Part of code got neglected from my original back port, because it doesn't appear in the corresponding Upstream commit.
And upstream still use this:
The following incremental patch should be include to enable TSC as clock source by default in 32-bit kernel on Intel NHM and newer processors.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
