[PATCH] i386: add command line option "local_apic_timer_c2_ok"
It turned out that it is almost impossible to trust ACPI, BIOS & Co. regarding the C states. This was the reason to switch the local apic timer off in C2 state already. OTOH there are sane and well behaving systems, which get punished by that decision. Allow the user to confirm that the local apic timer is trustworthy in C2 state. This keeps the default behaviour on the safe side.
