    Oh, I really wanted to stay out of this, but just a small clarification:
    I've reviewed your patches on a number of occasions, but I can't recall
    actually having the time to run them.

    Personally, I'm a little paranoid, so I'd be wary of counting any
    testing outside of -mm for much, as there are an amazing number of
    strange systems out there.

    Ok, so my take: While I've looked over both patch sets, and have noticed
    (and mentioned to tglx) the similarity in some of the changes, I don't
    see any big conflict in intent. They're both cleanups that make the
    clocksource code more flexible for uses other them just system

    Thomas' changes are more obviously purpose driven, and Daniel's appear
    more like just cleanups. So given that, if it were me, I'd put Thomas
    changes in first, and re-diff Daniel's non-redundant changes on top.

    Although, to be fair, I do know that Daniel has future sched_clock
    related patches that need his cleanups (so the cleanups are not just
    shuffling code). However, I'm not as psyched about those changes as I am
    about HRT, so again I'd rank HRT higher on the priority list.

    So I'm bummed this has collided like it has. I do like a number of
    Daniel's cleanups, and Thomas (and myself as well, really) could have
    communicated better. So the duplicate code is unfortunate, but its not
    really a stop-everything deal breaker, is it?

    Anyway, just my take.
