we (SUSE) have the patch in SLE12 (based on 3.12) for some time as our
customer needs to see the invtsc flag. And given it is so simple and
belongs IMO to the "New device IDs and quirks are also accepted."
category, I decided to take it into 3.12.

If you see some problem this could lead to, I can drop it from stable of
course. But then I would be definitely interested in details to fix this
in SLE12 as well.
