* Russell King - ARM Linux <linux at arm.linux.org.uk> [150511 06:23]:
> The SI unit of frequency is Hertz, named after Heinrich Hertz, and is
> given the symbol "Hz" to denote this.  "hz" is not the unit of frequency,
> and is in fact meaningless.
> Fix arch/arm to correctly use "Hz", thereby acknowledging Heinrich Hertz
> contribution to the modern world.
