Subject: [PATCH V2] clk: ux500: add range to usleep_range

Providing a range for usleep_range() allows the hrtimer subsystem to
coalesce timers - the delay is runtime configurable so a factor 2
is taken to provide the range. With the expected range for
enable_delay_us being milliseconds, the range should lie in the 250us
range which is sufficient for hrtimer optimization.

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <>

Problem located with an experimental coccinelle script                                    
V2: As clarified by Ulf Hansson <> the delays
    here are typically in the millisecond range - so as proposed
    replace the factor 2 by a 25% increase of max.

Patch was compile tested with: u8500_defconfig (implies COMMON_CLK=y)
(with some unrelated sparse warnings about not implemented system calls)                            
Patch is against 5.1-rc4 (localversion-next is next=20190410)
