Yes and yes and yes. So as per your paper on exotic embedded
architectures it would need to use a timer to work out real time after a
sleep period like on OMAP3. Making that stuff generic (like the 32 to
64 code) would be great.
Luckily in my application we disable DVFS and power management so this
Alternatively i.MX51 has a programmable timer that runs reasonably fast
(66.5MHz on my setup) and is independent of power saving. It's called
the EPIT, and I had that working too, but used the cycle count for
greater resolution and for it's similarities with OMAP3.

The patch is small and unspecial. I'd be happy to reassign the
copyright in this case.

I wouldn't be too happy with that if I were to submit something
