ok, so I dont know if it will help, but I disabled ACPI by putting 
hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" in my /boot/device.hints

now I see 
kern.timecounter.choice: TSC(-100) i8254(0) dummy(-1000000)

(in my dmesg at boot, I see 
Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 0)

im pretty sure the first and second items (TSC and one next to it) changed since 
I removed ACPI
and I dont see those messages in my syslog anymore.. so I guess thats a good sign.
