Keeping it under include/linux is probably wise since we want drivers
OUT of the ARM tree, but I don't know if there is much consensus on that?

I was more understanding the question as why it was needed at all.

Does it work to register the clocksource with say a core_initcall()
and avoid the header altogether?

Else a header is needed since we need to call out from the platform timer
init function to this clocksource to register it.

Thanks,
Linus Walleij
