Subject[PATCH] [PATCH] clocksource: tcb: fix min_delta calculation
Date
The commit

77cc982 clocksource: use clockevents_config_and_register() where possible

switches from manually calculating min_delta_ns (and others) and
clockevents_register_device() to automatic calculation via
clockevents_config_and_register(). During this conversation the "+ 1" in

min_delta_ns = clockevent_delta2ns(1, &clkevt.clkevt) + 1;

was lost. This leads to problems when programming clock events, resuling in
e.g. a sleep(2) sleeping more than 3 seconds. The "+ 1" was added in the
original code to fix a rounding problem in clockevent_delta2ns(), see
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/549744 for background
information.

This patch fixes the problem by increasing the min_delta to "2" ticks.
