I'm not a clocksource or irqchip expert, and far from an ACPI expert,
but this series overall looks good to me now.

I guess we'll need to wait until the patches are in the clocksource and
irqchip trees, and then merge that into the kvmarm tree, and apply patch
7 and 8 on top, or is there a simpler way to do this?
