    Any suggestions on making this patch "more friendly" with 2.5.44-ac3?
    Apparently some of his patch mucked around in the timers source files as
    well as defining completely opposite macros in
    arch/i386/kernel/timers/Makefile. I might of missed it, but I didn't
    notice anything in his changelog which would jump out at me, except for
    some of the Cyrix fixes. I'm going to give it a shot, but I thought I'd
    ask as well.
