Just cycle through all dom0s and look for the cpu_khz values:
 # xl dmesg | grep -w MHz
(XEN) Detected 2494.018 MHz processor.

What I have seen are ranges up to 200khz, even if /proc/cpuinfo says
"2.50GHz" . Some dom0s calibrated themselves to exactly 2500.000 MHz,
they do not need a tolerance.

The expected frequency of a given domU can be seen in 'dump softtsc
stats' (s). How various guest kernels deal with the slightly different
frequency, no idea.
