Doh, missed that these are two different time domains in the original
review, i.e. ns vs. cycles.

We should use separate defines for the filter since that check is done
in cycles. Not sure what names to use to keep things somewhat clear.

Maybe s/ADJUST/EXPIRE for the cycles, and s/ADJUST/NS for the ns ones?
E.g.:

#define LAPIC_TIMER_ADVANCE_EXPIRE_MIN 100
#define LAPIC_TIMER_ADVANCE_EXPIRE_MAX 10000
#define LAPIC_TIMER_ADVANCE_NS_MAX 5000
#define LAPIC_TIMER_ADVANCE_NS_INIT 1000
