[PATCH] Fix faulty HPET clocksource usage (fix for bug #7062)
Apparently some systems export valid HPET addresses, but hpet_enable() fails. Then when the HPET clocksource starts up, it only checks for a valid HPET address, and the result is a system where time does not advance. See http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7062 for details. This patch just makes sure we better check that the HPET is functional before registering the HPET clocksource.
