calibrate_delay_direct was using some variables with "tsc" as the prefix
(tsc_rate_min/max) ...so i thought of using lpj_tsc. And also IMO,
lpj_tsc explains how is this variable initialized. But thinking about
it, maybe we should rename it to "lpj_timer" ?

Also, i still haven't got to testing today's tip tree in my environment,
will let you know as soon as i have done it.

Thanks,
Alok
