Look at this:
$ cd /sys/devices/system/clocksource
$ ls -F
$ cd clocksource0/
$ ls -F
$ cat available_clocksource
tsc hpet acpi_pm
$ cat current_clocksource
Playing around here might help or give ideas. As far as I know, 'tsc' is
a bad choice for a clocksource (not sure why or if I am even correct),
but a good fallback when acpi_pm fails and hpet is unavailable.
Under KVM, I have a special KVM clocksource which synchronizes with the
host clock. Similarly on Xen.
