    ARM: ks8695: convert to generic time and clocksource · c7e783d6
    Linus Walleij authored
    Old platforms using ancient gettimeoffset() and other arcane
    APIs are standing in the way of cleaning up the ARM kernel.
    The gettimeoffset() was also broken: it would try to read out
    the timer counter value, while this would not work (the
    counter statically returns the initially programmed value)
    so the implementation would anyway fall back to a homebrew
    version of jiffie calculation.
    This is an attempt at blind-coding a generic time and clocksource
    driver for the platform by way of a datasheet and looking at the
    old code.
