Subject: [PATCH] Convert alpha to use arch_gettimeoffset()

> 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.
