What should I do about the ISA PIT timer?

Hi Support Gang / devel@,

I hae a Repair Center laptop whose one OFW test sometimes fails: "The
ISA PIT timer did not reach a count of 1".

This happens about 2-5% of the time I run the "selftest" word from
that device node in OFW (Q2E41): /pci/isa at f/timer at i40.

I can't find much on google about this error message or device node
(though the 8th google result is an excellent translation of "Gallus/
Roman Scenes in the time of Augustus).

Anybody seen this before?  Should I worry about it?
