Depends on the chip. It is used to calculate the amount of time spent
in a particular kernel delay loop. Some chips run this code faster or
slower than others. It's not a benchmark as much as a calibration

Oops. They could be referring to a PIII Coppermine, you know...

897MHz is just the FSB * 9. It doesn't run exactly at 100MHz because it
would be impossible to do so while maintaining synchronicity with a
33MHz PCI bus. 33MHz is actually 33.something, so you end up with
99.something when the FSB is running at 3x the PCI frequency.
