To clearify: In 2.0 the timer interrupt (where the ticks are added)
is in ...arch/i386/kernel/time.c. There is other code in
kernel/time.c and kernel/sched.c that is architecture independent.
May idea was to get the architecture-dependent code (timer interrupt)
fixed at the architecture dependent file. (e.g. Alpha's
timer interrupt)
