:) CNTFRQ as such is fine. I think the below print mis-lead me mostly.
sched_clock: ARM arch timer >56 bits at 6144kHz, resolution 162ns
sched_clock: 32 bits at 100 Hz, resolution 10000000ns, wraps every 4294967286ms
So yes, now the subject patch actually just avoids the jiffy sched_clock()
registration and nothing else. Even without the patch arch_timer sched_clock
will be in use.
