Does this mean an end to seeing "No counter-timer -- using %tick at 269MHz
as system clock." on my Ultra5? I know the thing has an RTC.. you can watch
it from OFW...
Although, I do also see "clock0 at ebus0 addr 0-1fff: mk48t59: hostid
809e8804".. I'm still wondering what the no counter-timer bit is about.
some ultrasparc systems simply do not have the "counter-timer"
and must use the %tick register instead. i believe some operating
systems use %tick for time *always*, whether counter-timer exists
