Sort of. You can run the userland daemon using tsc or hpet
clocksources (I think the latter is preferable) so probably the best
route is to get the daemon packaged and then ask on the kernel list if
they will carry the patch, though this would probably be rejected
unless there was a very good reason.

Maybe try and get it pushed in /staging upstream...?
