Richard Cochran - Sept. 23, 2010, 5:31 p.m.
A new syscall is introduced that allows tuning of a POSIX clock. The
syscall is implemented for four architectures: arm, blackfin, powerpc,
and x86.

The new syscall, clock_adjtime, takes two parameters, the clock ID,
and a pointer to a struct timex. The semantics of the timex struct
have been expanded by one additional mode flag, which allows an
absolute offset correction. When specificied, the clock offset is
immediately corrected by adding the given time value to the current
time value.

So I'd still split this patch up a little bit more.

1) Patch that implements the ADJ_SETOFFSET  (*and its implementation*)
in do_adjtimex.

2) Patch that adds the new syscall and clock_id multiplexing.

3) Patches that wire it up to the rest of the architectures (there's
still a bunch missing here).



And one little nit in the code:

Would it make sense to point to the do_adjtimex() in the k_clock
definition for CLOCK_REALTIME rather then conditionalizing it here?



thanks

Any reason why you CC'ed device-tree discuss ?

This list is getting way too much unrelated stuff, which I find
annoying, it would be nice if we were all a bit more careful here with
our CC lists.

Cheers,
Ben.

Says the guy who missed to trim the useless context of the original

there is nothing to see.

Heh, you can usually ignore what's after my signature :-) At least I
didn't put my reply all the way down the bottom !

I was not sure what the policy is about adding syscalls. Is it the
syscall author's responsibility to add it into every arch?

The last time (see a2e2725541fad7) the commit only added half of some
archs, and ignored others. In my patch, the syscall *really* works on
the archs that are present in the patch.

(Actually, I did not test blackfin, since I don't have one, but I
included it since I know they have a PTP hardware clock.)

But what about CLOCK_MONOTONIC_RAW, for example?

Does it make sense to allow it to be adjusted?

Thanks,

Sorry, I only added device-tree because some one asked me to do so.

I'll leave it off next time.

I'm not sure about policy, but I think for completeness sake you should
make sure every arch supports a new syscall. You're not expected to be
able to test every one, but getting the basic support patch sent to
maintainers should be done.

-EOPNOTSUPP

> Does it make sense to allow it to be adjusted?

No. I think only CLOCK_REALTIME would make sense of the existing clocks.

I'm just suggesting you conditionalize it from the function pointer,
rather then in the common function.

That's allright. I'd rather you just post the bindings there than the
whole patch least but no big deal.

I was just fixing my email filters and notice a lot of seemingly
unrelated stuff landing there :-)

Cheers,
Ben.
