>From Linus Torvalds, torvalds@cc.helsinki.fi, explaining about the variation one may see in the BogoMips rating, in c.o.l.development, at 28 April 1994

`The BogoMips calculation loop is « quantizised », so you’re most likely to get the exact same number all the time. You usually will get different numbers only if the speed is just on the « edge », when small variations (different time for interrupt ticks etc) will make it jump from one value to the other.’
