That's the speed of the processor bus, usually from which all
other core clocks are derived.  You should be using a newer version
of the kernel, at least from FSM Labs BitKeeper.  In the source
code pipeline is a change of the clock value from MHz to Hz.

Eh?  On most systems it won't do anything but affect the ability
of the kernel to keep time correctly.
