First of all, what are these patches based against? At least the first
one doesn't apply to our tree, possibly due to conflicts with Linus
Walleij's patch "ARM: gemini: convert to GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS" from 2013.

A couple of general comments about the patch series:

1) Please feel free to include a git shortlog with the cover letter

2) We try to standardize on "ARM: <platform>: <patch description"
as subject, i.e. here it would be "ARM: gemini: ...". (Space and
capitalization is the difference). I'll fix this up when applying, just
mentioning it for future patches.

3) While it's nice to see some updates and cleanups to the clock driver in the
mach directory, what would be even more awesome would be an effort to move
it into the drivers/clocksource directory where other platforms now have
their drivers. If you want to continue working on these, please consider
doing that work!
