Subject[PATCH 4.9 34/83] x86/apic: Handle missing global clockevent gracefully
Date
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit f897e60a12f0b9146357780d317879bce2a877dc upstream.

Some newer machines do not advertise legacy timers. The kernel can handle
that situation if the TSC and the CPU frequency are enumerated by CPUID or
MSRs and the CPU supports TSC deadline timer. If the CPU does not support
TSC deadline timer the local APIC timer frequency has to be known as well.

Some Ryzens machines do not advertize legacy timers, but there is no
reliable way to determine the bus frequency which feeds the local APIC
timer when the machine allows overclocking of that frequency.

As there is no legacy timer the local APIC timer calibration crashes due to
a NULL pointer dereference when accessing the not installed global clock
event device.

Switch the calibration loop to a non interrupt based one, which polls
either TSC (if frequency is known) or jiffies. The latter requires a global
clockevent. As the machines which do not have a global clockevent installed
have a known TSC frequency this is a non issue. For older machines where
TSC frequency is not known, there is no known case where the legacy timers
do not exist as that would have been reported long ago.
