Subject: [PATCH 0/2] Dynamic Tick: Enabling longer sleep times on 32-bit machines
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 18th August 2009 17:45:09 UTC (over 7 years ago)
From: Jon Hunter <[email protected]>

This is a resend of the patch series shown here:
http://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg891029.html

This patch series has been rebase on the linux-2.6-tip timers/core branch
per
request from Thomas Gleixner.

This patch series ensures that the wrapping of the clocksource will not be
missed if the kernel sleeps for longer periods and allows 32-bit machines
to
sleep for longer than 2.15 seconds.

Jon Hunter (2):
  Dynamic Tick: Prevent clocksource wrapping during idle
  Dynamic Tick: Allow 32-bit machines to sleep for more than 2.15
    seconds
