Hi,

This series adds support to permit the selection of clocksource/clockevent
via DT.

In [1] I proposed a solution other than the one in this series, with parsing DT
bindings and at probe time and passing it to timer specific probe function.
Looking forward though the clocksource/clockevent drivers implementation and
taking into account the response at [2] I sticked the implementation to
timer-of specific library.

The implementation in this series is using timer-of specific library to parse
the DT bindings related to timers functions: clocksource or clockevent.

With this implementation a timer's driver registers for probing an array of
objects of type struct timer_of. In flags member of struct timer_of object it
has to be passed the following new flags (related to how the driver will behave)
as follows:
- TIMER_OF_TYPE_CS: timer could work only as clocksource at a time
- TIMER_OF_TYPE_CE: timer could work only as clockevent at a time
- TIMER_OF_TYPE_CE_AND_CE: timer could work at a time as both, clocksource and
clockevent.

The timer registration macro (for probing) now gets a new argument which should
be an array of struct timer_of objects:

TIMER_OF_DECLARE(name, compat, handler, to)
CLOCKSOURCE_OF_DECLARE(name, compat, handler, to)

In case driver could work to feed only the clocksource subsystem or only the
clockevent subsystem the struct timer_of array passed to TIMER_OF_DECLARE()/
CLOCKSOURCE_OF_DECLARE() should contain 2 entries: one to be filled if probed
timer works as clocksource device, one to be filled if probed timer works as
clockevent device.

For such a case, the minimal format of struct timer_of array is as follows:
struct timer_of to[] = {
	{ .flags = TIMER_OF_TYPE_CS }
	{ .flags = TIMER_OF_TYPE_CE }
	{ /* sentinel. */
};

If timer could work as both, clocksource and clockevent at the same time,
the struct timer_of array should look as follows:
struct timer_of to[] = {
	{ .flags = TIMER_OF_TYPE_CE_AND_CS }
	{ /* sentinel. */
};

And in device tree there should be added chosen bindings as follows:

chosen {
	linux,clocksource {
		timer = <&timer1>
	};
	
	linux,clockevent {
		timer = <&timer2>;
	}
};

timer1: t1@123 {
	compatible = "timerx-compatible";
	/* the rest of DT bindings here */
};

timer2: t1@234 {
	compatible = "timerx-compatible";
	/* the rest of DT bindings here */
};

At probing time (timer_probe()), timer_of_init() will check the DT bindings
and try to match with one of the entries in struct timer_of array passed at
probe. The used entry will be considered used if the timers' device_node 
pointer is set. If no matching b/w DT and what has been passed for probe
via struct timer_of array then probe should fail.

The patches in this series are organized as follows:
1/7 - avoid calling timer_of_init() for every CPU since it should not be needed
2/7 - changes timer registration macro by adding a new argument (pointer to
      struct timer_of)
3/7 - use BIT() macro
4/7 - add clocksource/clockevent selection documentation [3]
5/7 - implement support described above
6/7 - remove an unnecessary line
7/7 - implement this support for integrator-ap timer

I implemented this support for timer published at [4].

Thank you,
Claudiu Beznea
