It doesn't matter.
I think it is silly we have different quirks flag states for TSC.
We should just having a table assuming that the TSC is safe to use in
SMP environments and gets rid of any other flag (in this case, for
amd64 based machine, the logic could, for example, check if the CPU is
P state invariant and assume it is safe, etc.)
