thank you for taking my patches

I have one question more: can you please push these patches to a
repository/branch which is included in -next?
I'm asking because I'd like to send patches that enable CPU frequency
scaling on Meson8, Meson8b and Meson8m2. The code to change the CPU
clock calls udelay(), which (in this special case) needs a delay timer
to work properly (we can't use jiffies as we're using udelay() *while*
changing the CPU clock).


Regards
Martin
