Unfortunately, this is a blocker for the slow AMD guest boot issue.

Comment 5 Zachary Amsden 2011-01-13 22:18:54 UTC
Please ignore the earlier parts of this bug, which are not related to TSC.  The SMP consistency issues with TSC on unstable hosts can not be resolved adequately without TSC trapping.

The TSC trapping code cannot be backported to 5.X kernels as it requires update clocksource code, so this issue can not be resolved in the 5.x series.
