    Ok. The history is well known to me.

    No, the test config I was talking about is SMP i386 (which is what I
    usually use). All tho I've sent you ARM and PowerPC code in the past.

    My code is for clocksouces/timekeeping which has been unrelated to HRT
    up until recently. In my original email I suggested that the two tree's
    be merged ,or placed on top of each other, which I still think is a good
    idea.
