[PATCH 0/8] MSM timer fixes and cleanups

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Currently the MSM timers use the same physical counter
for the clockevent and clocksource. This works as long
as the clocksource isn't stopped from ticking during normal
operation but unfortunately that isn't the case and the
clocksource is stopped when the clockevent is shutdown.
Even worse, switching the clocksource via sysfs at runtime will
hang the system.

This series reorganizes the MSM timer code so that one counter
is only used for either a clocksource or a clockevent, and not 
both. In the process we reduce the lines of code and fix
a few long-standing bugs.

I plan to add sched_clock support on top of this series once the
ARM generic patches are posted again (hopefully next week).
