[PATCH] x86: hpet: work around wrong number of timers in ID register
Not every HPET implementation gets the index of the last timer correct; if this field is erroneously set to the timer count, the kernel will allocate one additional timer that does not actually exist.

fixed sparkling issue on lcd panel when fb_blank mode is changed.
yes, you are right. when fb_blank mode is changed to FB_BLANK_NORMAL or FB_BLANK_UNBLANK(power down -> power up) it has a possibility that we would encounter same issue. I'd try to modify my patch to be considered with your opinion and will send it again. Thank you for your answer. Best Regards, InKi Dae.... 22 Mar 2010 01:28
