There's no harm in trying it out...

I had made a note of this in F11 because it solved a very bad problem
running flash videos and other things. On F12 (on a new machine), I
had a problem with occasional (frequent) "ticks," like a skip on a
vinyl record, and had a problem where the mouse pointer would "stick"
when moving it about. Very annoying.

I finally remembered the "fix" in F11 and thought it might apply to
F12. I applied the "tsched=0" bit and have had no more problems.

By the way, module-hal-detect is loaded in system.pa on F12, not default.pa.
