Re: [PATCH v21 00/13] acpi, clocksource: add GTDT driver and GTDT support in arm_arch_timer
From: Fu Wei
Date: Thu Mar 09 2017 - 17:48:18 EST
Hi Mark, Marc,
I have tried to rebase all the 19(6+13) patches on 4.11-rc1,
all the patchse can directly apply on 4.11-rc1,
Could you help to review the patches, and see if there is anywhere I
can improve ?
Great thanks ! :-)
