Looks good to me. Also properly demonstrates that utter brokenness
that is udelay on exynos5420 and exynos5800 right now upstream, like:

171 usecs x 100: exp=171000 allowed=170145 min=57791 avg=61586
max=435750 FAIL=99

...the same kernel on exynos5250 shows all passes (though I didn't
stress the low speeds where there are known problems due to the
intermediate freq transition).
