Re: TSC clock going backwards on suspend/resume

> Did you set TSC as timecounter by hand? 

No it was just selected:
$ /sbin/sysctl -a|grep -i tsc
kern.timecounter.choice = TSC(q=3000, f=1995145200 Hz) clockinterrupt(q=0, 
 Hz) ichlpcib0(q=1000, f=3579545 Hz) ACPI-Fast(q=1000, f=3579545 Hz) 
0, f=166336869 Hz) i8254(q=100, f=1193182 Hz) dummy(q=-1000000, f=1000000 Hz)
kern.timecounter.hardware = TSC
machdep.tsc_freq = 1995145200

It is not explained what the "drift" and "skew" are about,
and the *sync* functions are usually called twice for no
obvious reason. (I've cargo-culted this, perhaps it wasn't
necessary. If it was necessary it should be handled within
the functions, not by the caller.)

I've just instrumented binuptime() and the test was triggered
after a DDB trap. Might need research, but there is something.
