20 Calculate TSC frequency.

22 The TSC counting frequency is determined by comparing how far it counts

23 during a 101.4 us period as determined by the ACPI timer.

24 The ACPI timer is used because it counts at a known frequency.

25 The TSC is sampled, followed by waiting 363 counts of the ACPI timer,

26 or 101.4 us. The TSC is then sampled again. The difference multiplied by

27 9861 is the TSC frequency. There will be a small error because of the

28 overhead of reading the ACPI timer. An attempt is made to determine and

29 compensate for this error.

31 @return The number of TSC counts per second.
