(In that case that line could be part of the patch adding the clock
driver. That might work too. Depends on how things fit together,

Would one series for everything you plan to submit have worked here or
would that grow unwieldy?

Anyhow, would I have known that the code that actually enables this
driver to build was pending this discussion would not have started. (I
do try to check for related patches, on lkml that is, even if they're
not part of the same series etc.) Say, with a small remark below the ---
line as we discussed. And would I then have started a thread like this
you could point a finger at me and shout: "Paul can't read! Na na na na
na! Paul can't read!"
