There is a driver that I am working on that could change frequency of
local APIC timer by changing FSB frequency and I want to make that
driver smarter and refuse to attach if local APIC timer is used. I know
that in 6.X and CURRENT local APIC timer is always used and in 5.X it is
never used, but I want my driver to handle environment more generally.
I am thinking, can I just somehow check if IRQ0 is in use ? Would it be
something close to proper solution ?
