[TLDR: I'm adding this regression report to the list of tracked
regressions; all text from me you find below is based on a few templates
paragraphs you might have encountered already already in similar form.]

Hi, this is your Linux kernel regression tracker. Thx for CCing the
regression list in a later mail.

To be sure the issue doesn't fall through the cracks unnoticed as it
mentioned in the weekly reports, I'm adding it to regzbot, my Linux
kernel regression tracking bot:

#regzbot ^introduced 09e3b18ca5de
#regzbot title clk: bcm2835: 09e3b18ca5de broke the behavior of
bcm2835_clock_choose_div() and booting of Raspberry Pi booting of

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)

P.S.: As the Linux kernel's regression tracker I deal with a lot of
reports and sometimes miss something important when writing mails like
this. If that's the case here, don't hesitate to tell me in a public
reply, it's in everyone's interest to set the public record straight.
