patch to rename FREQ macro
When building for the ARM IXP4xx platform, <linux/timex.h> ends up including
arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx/include/mach/timex.h which defines the macro FREQ. This conflicts with use of FREQ as an enumerator in drivers/media/video/gspca/ov519.c.
Since the macro is platform-specific, its name really ought to be given a suitable prefix to avoid such conflicts.

As I said, the patch was already sent by mail; I'm just repeating it here.
