OK.  Is this sufficient?


Lower the rating of the UV rtc clocksource to just below that of the tsc.

Reading the tsc clocksource has lower latency than reading the rtc, so favor
it in situations where it is synchronized and stable.  When the tsc is
unsynchronized, the rtc needs to be the chosen clocksource.
