Andi, Andrew,

any reaction to the submission for upstream inclusion below? We have put
a lot of effort into it but this work is currently blocked by apparent
silence from the x86_64 maintainer. Thanks,

The following patch series contains:

- dyntick bugfixes for -mm (caused by the cpuidle changes in ACPI)

- updates and improvements to high resolution timer / dynticks

- high resolution timer / dynticks support for x86_64

The x86_64 support is based on an initial patch from Chris Wright.
Thanks Chris !

The patch set has been tested in the -hrt and -rt trees for quite a
while and the initial problems have been sorted out. Thanks to the folks
from the PowerTop project for testing and feedback.

The -hrt tree at http://www.tglx.de/projects/hrtimers/2.6.22-rc4/
contains also an hpet force patch series from Venki Pallipadi, but I
leave this up to Venki to send it mainline wards.
