    Subject[PATCH 0/13] Time: Generic Timeofday Subsystem (v B12)
    The following patchset applies against 2.6.15-rc3-mm1 and provides a
    generic timekeeping subsystem that is independent of the timer
    interrupt. This allows for robust and correct behavior in cases of late
    or lost ticks, avoids interpolation errors, reduces duplication in arch
    specific code, and allows or assists future changes such as high-res
    timers, dynamic ticks, or realtime preemption. Additionally, it provides
    finer nanosecond resolution values to the clock_gettime functions.

    The patch set provides the minimal NTP changes, the clocksource
    abstraction, the core timekeeping code as well as the code to convert
    the i386 and x86-64 archs. I have started on converting more arches, but
    for now I'm focusing on i386 and x86-64.

    New in this release:
    o Merged Ingo's whitespace/style fixups (*Many* thanks for this help!)
    o Addressed Ingo's TODO items.
    o Merged cpufreq SMP fix
    o Dropped tsc-interp clocksource (wasn't being used)
    o Improved NUMAQ bits

    Still on the TODO list:
    o Submit to -mm

    I'd like to thank the following people who have contributed ideas,
    criticism, testing and code that has helped shape this work:
