 I'll have a look at your patches, but I hope you have got about the most
interesting configuration right, which is the DEC platform

hmm, I looked at arch/mips/dec/time.c, and I'm not sure to understand it.
Could you give me more info ?

To be sure we're taking about the same thing, I'm calling "hpt" the timer
in CP0 _only_. If you have others timers let's call them "timer".

where you can have one of these:

1. No HPT at all.

What's generating the tick interrupt in this case ?

2. HPT in the chipset.

What do you mean by chipset ? the DS1287 ?

3. HPT in CP0.

Reading the dec code, it seems that whatever the case, you don't use
the hpt cp0 as tick interrupt source. It's only use as a clock source.
If so, why ?
