Subject[PATCH] Convert alpha to use arch_gettimeoffset()
From
Date
This patch converts alpha to use GENERIC_TIME via the arch_getoffset()
infrastructure, reducing the amount of arch specific code we need to
maintain.

I suspect the alpha arch could even be further improved to provide and
rpcc() based clocksource, but not having the hardware, I don't feel
comfortable attempting the more complicated conversion (but I'd be glad
to help if anyone else is interested).

This patch applies on top of Linus' current -git tree (pre 2.6.31-rc1).

I've taken my best swing at converting this, but I'm not 100% confident
I got it right. It does cross compile, so that's hopefully a good sign.
Any assistance from arch maintainers or testers to get this merged would
be great.

thanks
