| Could you try temporarily reverting

| support) causing problems on some x86 systems.  Unfortunately I have not
| been able to reproduce the problem myself.

Okay, so I did a git revert 757ab98 followed by a git commit -a -m "revert to 757ab98" and the compile fails with the error

interface/efi/efi_timer.c:100: error: expected identifier or ‘(’ before ‘<<’ token
interface/efi/efi_timer.c:149:19: error: invalid suffix "ab98..." on integer constant
make[1]: *** [bin/efi_timer.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/rcg/home/jpeltier/git-repos/ipxe/src'
make: *** [lkrn] Error 2
