Hi Brent,

I still run
sudo chgrp audio /dev/hpet ; sudo chmod g+rw /dev/hpet ; sudo modprobe snd-hrtimer
for my scripts to start audio sessions, since the question isn't what
might be or not be needed.

It's also important to be backwards compatible.

I notice that for Linux nowadays nobody does take care about this. If
application A doesn't do what it should do and does for the last years,
simply switch to application B and don't use all the important private
data of the last years any more or don't expect your scripts that set up
special conditions for some needs by e.g. stopping a service, to work
any more.

So what ever should be needed to temporarily enable hr timer usage
today, IMO it's important that it does work for your machine using alpha
software and for your 4 years old stable DAW.

2 Cents,
