I believe that the compiler would coalesce the two "timer" string
constants in the patch from Afzal (as per my suggestion).

I suspect that your version costs a few extra bytes everywhere it appears
(but I didn't check).

That error would almost always be -EBUSY, right?

Moreover, compare this change,

- setup_irq(TMR_IRQ_NUM, &m68328_timer_irq);
+ request_irq(TMR_IRQ_NUM, hw_tick, IRQF_TIMER, "timer", NULL);

with this change,

+ int err;

- setup_irq(TMR_IRQ_NUM, &m68328_timer_irq);
+ err = request_irq(TMR_IRQ_NUM, hw_tick, IRQF_TIMER, "timer", NULL);
+ if (err)
+ return err;

Isn't the latter change the more common pattern? It prints nothing.

And arguably, the former example is actually the change that's described
in the commit description.

This patch seems to be making two orthogonal changes but I'll leave that
question to the maintainer. (I'm not really trying to NAK this patch.)
