    SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86/hpet: prevent boot hang when hpet=force used on old ICH
    Ingo,
    Thanks for the reply.

    But please disregard that patch -- we've cooked up a better one
    that allows ICH4M to continue to use hpet=force, even for clocksource.
    (and it is an ACPI patch rather than an x86 patch:-)

    However, I'll also send a 2nd patch to stop soliciting more hpet=force
    users, since technically we shouldn't be encouraging the use of
    this un-documented and lightly-validated hardware.

    thanks,
    Len Brown, Intel Open Source Technology Center
