We talked about it at the ARM subarchitecture maintainer summit, and I think
I'll just merge your platform code for 3.2 if you send the fixed version
in time. I'm not going to merge your clk support patch (2/5) though, since
there is a lot of work going into the common clk framework right now, and
I don't want to cause more work going into rewriting your code.

Please instead replace that patch with a stubbed-out version that builds
but doesn't actually do anything. Obviously you won't be able to run on
actual hardware then but you still have the patch you did and know how to
apply it for testing ;-).

It seems all good to me, but I would definitely appreciate Grant and Rob
to take a closer look.

It can, but it needs an Acked-by from John and/or Thomas in that case.
Alternatively, feel free to stick my acked-by on the patch and have
Thomas handle the patch.
