  Modified files:
    sys/kern             kern_clock.c 
  - Make device polling use seperate SYSTIMER instead of hardclock
  - Add "kern.polling.pollhz" sysctl-node/tunable-variable, which can be used to
    set device polling frequency(1 ~ 20000) on a *running* system
Nice one!  This sounds brilliant.  It would be interesting to test this 
change on
an MP machine.
