Hi all,

HPET cputimer is committed to HEAD.  I suggest to try it out on your
boxes running HEAD, if 'acpidump -d | grep HPET' shows that you have
HPET device.

To testing it, you need to put:
into you /boot/loader.conf.

If the HPET is detected and attached, kern.cputimer.name will be
"HPET".  If you have HPET device according to acpidump, but acpi_hpet0
is not attached, please report back.

Best Regards,
