You probably missed the entry:
CLOCKSOURCE, CLOCKEVENT DRIVERS

I could have directly picked the clocksource/clockevent changes to my tree but
I decided to let them go through the ARM's tree. I meant, as the patches are
acked (by me), it is ok they are merged through arm's tree. From my POV, it is
somewho acceptable when a new SoC support is added.
In the future, when the clockevent/clocksource drivers are merged and if there
are more changes, at this time, send the patches to Thomas and me as stated in
the maintainer file entry, I will take care of them.
IOW, everything is fine ;)
