SubjectRE: [PATCH][2.6][2/5]Support for HPET based timer
Date
From

Yes. I hadn't thought about early_ioremap option. There seems to be
multiple ways of doing early ioremap: bt_ioremap() and boot_ioremap(). I
will look at them closer and work on changing HPET code to use one of
these in place of fixmap.

Thanks,
