    Plus we've just merged a fix for NO_HZ on PXA platforms due to an utterly
    broken one-shot implementation. So chances are this problem is now fixed.

    However, I object strongly to Andrew's responses to these bugs. He's
    completely out of line.

    Given the wide range of ARM platforms today, it is utterly idiotic to
    expect a single person to be able to provide responses for all ARM bugs.
    I for one wish I'd never *VOLUNTEERED* to be a part of the kernel
    bugzilla, and really *WISH* I could pull out of that function.
