How that?

This code path is reachable only from arch_domain_create()
(setting defaults) and XEN_DOMCTL_settscinfo (which Dom0 can't
issue against itself). So either there's some important part missing
from the description, or I fail to see what use this change is. Hmm,
on a platform where host_tsc_is_safe() returns false the setting
of defaults would have an effect, but I think the description
should then say so, instead of giving the impression that the
functionality would become available in full.
