Sorry for top posting .... Probably we should move the dmtimer to drivers/misc or create drivers/timer/
This has been pending for quite some time now....

Tony, what you say ?

Subject: [PATCH 0/2] ARM: OMAP: dmtimers improvements.

I would like to use omap dmtimer for a PWM driver (for the backlight
on my display).
But there are two difficulties.

Unfortunately Jon Hunter (who has helped me with dmtimers before)
seems to have disappeared. So I guess I get to do it myself :-)

Following two patches make dmtimers more usable.

1/ allow the counter to be set even when the timer isn't counting.
2/ move the include file to a more useful location

Any help you can provide in getting these fixes upstream would be appreciated.

ARM: OMAP2+: dmtimer: allow counter to be set at any time.
ARM: OMAP: move dmtimer.h from plat-omap/include/plat to include/linux
