If you want a real McGyver solution:
Take a piece of radioactive material with short half-life, place it on top of the memory, and use the processor to count the number of random bit flips induced per period of time. Knowing the half life, the rate of change in the number of bit flips will give you the length of the period of time, which (with the known number of cycles taken by the code) will give you the frequency.
You forgot to say the radioactive material has to be glued to the circuit using chewing gum.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
