Subject[PATCH 0/2] clockevents: introduce ->set_dev_mode() and convert a few drivers
Currently, the ->set_mode() method of a clockevent device is not
allowed to fail, so it has no return value. In order to add new
clockevent modes, and allow the setting of those modes to fail, we
need the clockevent core to be able to detect when setting a mode

Rather than changing the current ->set_mode() and requiring all
clockevent devices to change immedately, introduce a new mode setting
method ->set_dev_mode() which returns 'int'.

In addition, migrate a few drivers over to the new method to
demonstrate how the new method is to be used, and how to convert.

Proposal for new method originally suggested by Thomas Gleixner[1].

clockevents: introduce ->set_dev_mode() which can return error
