Subject[PATCH 3/3] x86/tsc: Introduce early tsc clocksource
Without TSC_KNOWN_FREQ we register the TSC clocksource so late we
first switch to the HPET. Using HPET on large CPU count machines is
undesirable.

Therefore register a tsc-early clocksource using the preliminary
tsc_khz from quick calibration. Then when the final TSC calibration
comes in, we can switch to that.

The only notably problem is that we must mark the real tsc clocksource
with CLOCK_SOURCE_VALID_FOR_HRES, otherwise we will not select it when
unregistering tsc-early. And we cannot leave tsc-early registered,
because then we'd fall back to it when we mark the tsc clocksource as
unstable.
