The no_timer_check is already permanently disabled in below commit?

commit a90ede7b17d1 ("KVM: x86: paravirt skip pit-through-ioapic boot check")

In addition, hyperv and vmware also disabled that:

commit ca3ba2a2f4a4 ("x86, hyperv: Bypass the timer_irq_works() check").

commit 854dd54245f7 ("x86/vmware: Skip timer_irq_works() check on VMware")
