Hi Linus,

Was there anything wrong with Frederic's printk patches? They are needed
as one of the steps to acheive tickless for a CPU running a single task.

Maybe his "RFC" threw you for a loop. It was RFC as, if you're OK with
it, please pull it, otherwise please comment to what you think is
wrong with it.

It's been in linux-next for a while without anyone complaining about it.
I replied to his patch with the diff against your tree as Frederic left
that out.
