    I've send a few iterations of my SuperH CMT timer patches to the
    linux-sh list, but I'd be happy to post next version to lkml instead
    if you prefer that!

    The CMT driver also needs the following patches:

    [PATCH] clocksource: pass clocksource to read() callback
    [PATCH][RFC] early platform driver support

    Any comments on the early platform driver code?

    Thanks,

    / magnus
