Subject: Re: [PATCH] clocksource/drivers/timer-ti-dm: Remove
 omap_dm_timer_set_load_start

Hi,

I certainly do ask and wait for acks where possible :)

Note that I have not applied this patch. I just added
Keerthy to Cc on this thread so maybe you misread the
message earlier. My comment "seems like no other
takers" was for Ladislav regarding somebody picking up
his earlier work, not for picking up this patch :)

In any case, I've been waiting for you guys to pick up
the patch, here's my ack if you're waiting for it:

Acked-by: Tony Lindgren <tony@...mide.com>
