Subject: [PATCH 4.9 02/83] MIPS: kernel: only use i8253 clocksource with periodic clockevent
Date: Wed,  4 Sep 2019 19:52:54 +0200
Message-ID: <20190904175303.776133799@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190904175303.488266791@linuxfoundation.org>

[ Upstream commit a07e3324538a989b7cdbf2c679be6a7f9df2544f ]

i8253 clocksource needs a free running timer. This could only
be used, if i8253 clockevent is set up as periodic.
