    Very Cool!

    Hmmm. While we do have suspend and resume functions for the timekeeping
    core, I'm not sure if suspend and resume are necessary for each struct
    clocksource since state changes are only allowed inside the callback
    hook. That probably should be better documented. :)

    Some specific hardware that might provide a clocksource interface may
    need suspend/resume hooks (like the PIT, for example), but in my mind
    that would be done independently from the clocksource code.

    But maybe I'm not quite grasping what you're suggesting, so feel free to
    clarify with maybe an example of its use and I'll re-think it.

    Thanks for the code review and patches! I really appreciate it!
