I noticed StdLib uses TimerLib (LibC.inf and Time.inf). TimerLib provides a platform/chipset/processor specific timer interface and therefore is not suitable for linking against apps and drivers (that are not intended to be part of the platform).
I see that the use case here is to call GetPerformanceCounter. If a portable app or driver needs performance counter access then I think we must add a protocol interface to abstract this.
