Hi Molnar, Pavel,

This is a question to those who know the kernel much better than I do,
so please excuse me if it's trivial:

Question: Is there any special reason why the system time 10.2ms update
is not done during the timer interrupt routine itself, but only in the
bottom half code?

Thanks for any help,
André Balsa

PS please answer directly, since I am not on the list anymore (can't
keep up with the traffic >:0)
