    Hey Ben,
    I appreciate your looking over my patch. You are correct, the
    conversion is a bit rough and I've not yet been able to work on the
    powerpc vDSO, although I'd like to get it working so any help or
    suggestions would be appreciated (is there a reason the vDSO is written
    in ASM?).

    If you have any other concerns w/ that patch, or the generic timekeeping
    code, please let me know and I'll do what I can to address them.

    thanks
    -john
