Thanks for the ideas; however even after I made the kernel use tsc as
time source, and made sure that no one opens /dev/hpet, I fail to use
HPET (with same errors as before)

I now have

$ dmesg |grep -i hpet
ACPI: HPET 7D5B6AE0, 0038 (r1 A M I  OEMHPET   5000708 MSFT       97)
ACPI: HPET id: 0x8086a301 base: 0xfed00000
hpet0: at MMIO 0xfed00000, IRQs 2, 8, 0, 0
hpet0: 4 64-bit timers, 14318180 Hz
hpet_resources: 0xfed00000 is busy

Any other idea?
