Okay, give it a good look though, I only wrote it out in email, never
tested it :)

Right, your patches are fine stand alone.

The ARM case of plat-omap/counter_32k.c would ideally be converted to
use your new API though, that is what I ment about involving them.

I'm not sure about mach-tegra/timer.c though - it seems to be using a
counter as well but somehow sharing registers with the RTC?
