  • Get into struct clk generalization and movement of clk drivers into drivers/clk
  • Watch the DBx500 PRCMU drivers update
  • Mainline some ux500 U-Boot stuff so it can atleast boot he system.


  • Appended device trees does not work for us. Still don't know why.
  • Shanghaiied for internal advisory at ST-Ericsson for too much time last week, ~20-30% so I'll be working from home a bit to reduce stress levels.
