In a more abstract fashion (I don't have any hardware of this type!)
I'm still keen for the counter subsystem to go in. Hopefully, if
Greg or anyone else wants to take a detailed look they will have time

I was pretty happy with the last version I read through. There will
always be things to improved, but as long a we are happy with
the userspace inteface, the little things can happen later.
