Subject2.6.22-rc3-mm1: __attribute__((weak)) considered harmful
statistics-infrastructure-make-printk_clock-a-generic-kernel-wide-nsec-resolution.patch 
shows why __attribute__((weak)) is harmful because you don't see if a
required non-weak implemtation is missing:

In this case, the weak printk_clock() was renamed to timestamp_clock(),
but the ARM and i386 implementations weren't renamed...

"Is there not promise of rain?" Ling Tan asked suddenly out
of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
"Only a promise," Lao Er said.
