It depends on how old.
If the other sending side has write_tsc_info from 4.6+, then _res1 is zero.
If it is older, the XC_SAVE_ID_TSC_INFO is eventually not handled anymore.
At least I could not find the relevant code, even in staging-4.6.
But then, it is unlikely that migration from 4.5 to 4.6 did not work.

Also, in general the input comes from "remote". So it is untrusted.
