    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.
