[PATCH] x86: Add acpi_user_timer_override option for Asus boards
Timer overrides are normally disabled on Nvidia board because they are commonly wrong, except on new ones with HPET support. Unfortunately there are quite some Asus boards around that don't have HPET, but need a timer override. We don't know yet how to handle this transparently, but at least add a command line option to force the timer override and let them boot.
