I get around that by using Liquorix kernel which I think is hard coded 
to use performance governor. The wiki doesn't mention what to do if 
scaling driver is intel_pstate although from reading it's possible to 
disable that and load acpi-cpufreq scaling driver instead which is 
needed to be able to set the governor to performance AFAIK. There are 
several pertinent questions on StackOverflow discussing that, like - 

Back to HW timers, it's trivial to set them as explained in the wiki, 
but I'm just wondering if they are actually still used?
