This has changed the behavior of the HPET timers somewhat.
With patch5 I was seeing approximately equal interrupt counts from
hpet0 and hpet1.
Now the majority of interrupts are on hpet0 by a factor of 6 to 10.
Not a show stopper, just thought I'd mention it.
One difference is that I didn't apply tm6292_idle.patch this time.
