This driver provides a clock event source based on the MFGPT timer(s)
in the CS5535 and CS5536 companion chip for the geode. MFGPTs have a
better resolution and max interval than the generic PIT, and are
suitable for use as high-res timers.
I guess it's save to disable this in the kernel and I hope it works afterwards.
