Subject: Re: [PATCH V3 net-next 0/4] Two new PTP Hardware Clock features

From: Richard Cochran <richardcochran@...il.com>
Date: Sat, 22 Sep 2012 19:02:00 +0200

> This patch series adds two new features to the PHC code.
> 
> * ChangeLog
> ** V3
>    - Use the correct parent device in the solarflare driver.
>    - Expand the sysfs documentation of clock_name.
>    - Also document the clock_name field in the header file.
> ** V2 
>    - Preserves the clock_name attribute as it was meant to be, instead
>      of making any changes to it.
>    - Covers the registration API change in the brand new solarflare phc
>      device, which was overlooked in V1.
> 
> The first two patches let a user program find out the previously
> dialed frequency adjustment. This is primarily useful when restarting
> a PTP service, since without this information, the presumably correct
> adjustment will bias the new frequency estimation.
> 
> The third patch links the phc class device to its parent device within
> the driver model and sysfs.
> 
> The fourth patch adds a bit more documentation of the sysfs clock_name
> attribute. This should help clarify the naming scheme.

All applied, with a minor coding style correction made to patch #2

Thanks.
