When booting with hpet=disable we see stuff like:

[   49.411072] usb 1-6.3: new full-speed USB device number 4 using xhci_hcd
[   60.413459] clocksource: timekeeping watchdog on CPU3: Marking
clocksource 'tsc' as unstable because the skew is too large:

[   61.389516] Freeing unused kernel image (initmem) memory: 1056K

I.e.: messages about TSC appear to be not too positive. Gigabyte
customer support were informed about this.
when running without HPET ntpd still does not select NMEA gps as system
So HPET is not the cause now. But what is?

Kind regards,
