Such (embedded) hardware uses a very small percentage of the drivers
we have in the tree, changing them as required seems quite sane and
manageable in 2.7.x time-frame.

I also do see why clock-less has to be embedded only, I suspect maybe
the s390 could make use of this too? (Think of lots of mostly-idle
Linux instances under VM).

And, it's a 'new feature' so if people need to upgrade, then Life is
tough. How sad.
