Subject: Re: [PATCH] tcb_clksrc: Use 32 bit tcb as sched_clock

Le 11/01/2017 à 14:50, David Engraf a écrit :
> On newer boards the TC can be read as single 32 bit value without locking.
> Thus the clock can be used as reference for sched_clock which is much more
> accurate than the jiffies implementation.
