Hi,

The patch which fixes this TSC going back issue for vmi clocksource is
already applied in mainline and stable kernels for 2.6.27/28, so I guess
intrepid and jaunty will get it from there. 

I just wanted to bring this to your attention for the *hardy* tree. 
The commit details are : 

commit 48ffc70b675aa7798a52a2e92e20f6cce9140b3d
Author: Alok N Kataria <akataria at vmware.com>

    x86, vmi: TSC going backwards check in vmi clocksource

Can you please pick this up for the hardy tree ? 
Also I see that the TSC patches that I had sent to you earlier are in
the hardy git tree, but not available as an kernel update yet, right ? 
In that case can we please queue this patch too for the next update
along with the TSC patches. 

Thanks,
Alok
