Subject: [PATCHv3 01/10] clocksource: add generic dummy timer driver
Date: Wed, 13 Mar 2013 11:17:47 -0700
Message-ID: <1363198676-30417-2-git-send-email-sboyd@codeaurora.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1363198676-30417-1-git-send-email-sboyd@codeaurora.org>

From: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com>

Several architectures have a dummy timer driver tightly coupled with
their broadcast code to support machines without cpu-local timers (or
where there is a lack of driver support).

Since 12ad100046: "clockevents: Add generic timer broadcast function"
it's been possible to write broadcast-capable timer drivers decoupled
from the broadcast mechanism. We can use this functionality to implement
a generic dummy timer driver that can be shared by all architectures
with generic tick broadcast (ARCH_HAS_TICK_BROADCAST).

This patch implements a generic dummy timer using this facility.
