I don't mind failing tests, though I suspect until a developer actually wants
this, it won't ever get fixed by us. Although, as I said on IRC, I think I'd
like to do 2 tests for this then - one proving PS invocations is non-zero if
QUERY_COUNTER_BITS is non-zero (since I believe that should be impossible no
matter the HW implementation), the other expects a reasonable value, for some
definition of reasonable which I've yet to define.

In all, this extension is a bit of a trainwreck to write good tests for. I had
secretly hoped one of the authors would chime in with their input.

Anyhoo... will be a while before I have time to work on this again. Let's hope I
make 10.6 :P
