Subject[PATCH 16/17] clocksource/drivers/mips-gic-timer: Add fastpath for local timer updates
Date
From: Matt Redfearn <matt.redfearn@mips.com>

Always accessing the compare register via the CM redirect region is
(relatively) slow. If the timer being updated is the current CPUs
then this can be shortcutted by writing to the CM VP local region.
