I think that "wider process problems" is probably a euphemism, and I'll
take responsibility for that.  This has been a learning process for me
and I underestimated the percentage of my time that would be consumed by
common clk maintenance.  I'm trying to rectify that problem now.

I could use some suggestions on the best way to resolve the merge issues
we have currently.  It appears that we have three bases that platforms
need to port over the common clk framework:

Russell's clkdev
Arnd's arm-soc
My clk-next branch

I was happy to push my changes to Linus directly (as discussed in
previous mails) but I'm starting to think that maybe having Arnd absorb
the clk-next branch as part of arm-soc would be the fastest way to
assist platforms that are porting over.

Do the platform folks agree?  Is this suggestion sane?
