:I like it. But maybe struct systimer for device polling should be moved to
:struct globaldata the others gd_*clocks are?
:By the way, is it possible to pull for device a on cpu0 and device b on
:cpu1? I mean destributing the device pulling work amoung multiple cpus.

    The current polling implementation is basically just on cpu 0, so for
    this first stage we should probably keep it on cpu 0.  In that light,
    the patch is fine and I will be committing it.
