   I'd like to see clocksource_mips.name overriden there as well.

And also I forgot about that clocksource continuity thing: TX3927 and other clocksource making use of jiffies should not be considered countinous. This is not an issue though, till GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS are ported to these platforms...

Yes now it is possible without touching generic code.  You can do it
if you wanted.  I do not have strong feeling for custom name :)

Well, it seems Ralf wants this to be converted into serveral clocksources eventually...
