I did some searching, and I came across two papers that may be of interest to you. The first is a paper on clocking in Nehalem, including the delay line used in Quickpath clock receivers (see section III):

Next Generation Intel Core Micro-Architecture (Nehalem) Clocking

The second is specifically dedicated to the Rx clocking circuit. For some reason, this paper hasn't received much attention from anywhere, but it's a very high quality paper that easily could have been published at ISSCC:

Intel Core i5-i7 Quickpath Interconnect Receiver Clocking Circuits and Training Algorithm
