But use_tsc is still used:

static int
time_cpufreq_notifier(struct notifier_block *nb, unsigned long val,
                       void *data)


#ifndef CONFIG_SMP
                if (use_tsc) {
                        fast_gettimeoffset_quotient = cpufreq_scale(fast_gettimeoffset_ref, freq->new, ref_freq);
                        cpu_khz = cpufreq_scale(cpu_khz_ref, ref_freq, freq->new);

And almost any patch to the x86 boot code is too convoluted to be
"trivial" IMHO.
