SubjectRe: hwclock failure in x86.git
I'm no expert, but I happened to notice this go by.

That doesn't seem too critical.

Is it OK that we lost the different final steps of those two functions?
It looks like someone might have missed the differing tail sections of
the function when copying and pasting and updating just the start of the
functions?

Sorry if I missed why this is OK and intended, I didn't read very closely.
