Even after asking again, I never did hear from the customer why it matters if 
the name changes. The case is being closed, and I am assuming that the 
information you gave (that I passed onto the customer) was sufficient to answer 
the customer's question.

Thank you Greg, Vitaly, and Peter for helping answer this question.

Or better yet, in a pretty html format:

But, this is a name of a clocksource, not really an internal kernel api.

Alma, what external tool depends on the specific name of a kernel clock?
Why would it matter what the name of it is?
