I wasn't aware the cobalt hardware had a rtc. The clock runs fast.
That reminds me; the rm5200 is a mips3 chip yeah? That means it should
have some kind of hardware tick counter. Anyone familiar with Dan
Bernstein's clockspeed program? Anyone wanna help me "port" it to this
platform. Currently it only supports x86 with a TSC and Sparc. But the
section that tickles the tick counter is just a #define so I figure it
shouldn't be too hard to add a case for mips.
