Though X86_FEATURE_CONSTANT_TSC is usually set for TSC reliable system, just inSo what you wanted to say here is:
tsc_clocksource_reliable is initialized in check_system_tsc_reliable(),
but it is checked in unsynchronized_tsc() which is called before the
In practice that's not an issue because systems which mark the TSC
reliable have X86_FEATURE_CONSTANT_TSC set as well, which is evaluated
in unsynchronized_tsc() before tsc_clocksource_reliable.
Reorder the calls so initialization happens before usage.
I'll read them.
All this information is also documented in Documentation/process/.
No need to resend. I'll fix it up for you this time.
