The current RISC-V timer driver is convoluted and implements two
distinct timers:
 1. S-mode timer: This is for Linux RISC-V S-mode with MMU. The
    clocksource is implemented using TIME CSR and clockevent device
    is implemented using SBI Timer calls.
 2. M-mode timer: This is for Linux RISC-V M-mode without MMU. The
    clocksource is implemented using CLINT MMIO time register and
    clockevent device is implemented using CLINT MMIO timecmp registers.

This patchset removes clint related code from RISC-V timer driver and
arch/riscv directory. Instead, the series adds a dedicated MMIO based
CLINT driver under drivers/clocksource directory which can be used by
Linux RISC-V M-mode (i.e NoMMU Linux RISC-V).

The patchset is based up Linux-5.8-rc6 and can be found at riscv_clint_v5
branch of: https://github.com/avpatel/linux.git

This series is tested on:
 1. QEMU RV64 virt machine using Linux RISC-V S-mode
 2. QEMU RV32 virt machine using Linux RISC-V S-mode
 3. QEMU RV64 virt machine using Linux RISC-V M-mode (i.e. NoMMU)

Changes since v4:
 - Rebased series on Linux-5.8-rc6
 - Updated Kconfig option as suggested by Daniel in PATCH2
 - Removed per-CPU registered flag in PATCH2
 - Addressed nit comments from Atish in PATCH2

Changes since v3:
 - Updated commit description of PATCH2
 - Use clint_get_cycles64() in clint_rdtime() of PATCH2
 - Call clockevents_config_and_register() only once for each CPU in
   clint_timer_starting_cpu of PATCH2
 - Select CLINT timer driver from platform Kconfig in PATCH3
 - Fixed 'make dt_binding_check' for PATCH4

Changes since v2:
 - Rebased series on Linux-5.8-rc5
 - Squashed PATCH3 onto PATCH2 to preserve GIT bisectability
 - Moved PATCH4 before PATCH2 to preserve GIT bisectability
 - Replaced CLINT dt-bindings text document with YAML schema
 - Use SiFive CLINT compatible string as per SiFive IP block versioning

Changes since v1:
 - Rebased series on Linux-5.8-rc2
 - Added pr_warn() for case where ipi_ops not available in PATCH1
 - Updated ipi_inject() prototype to use "struct cpumask *" in PATCH1
 - Updated CLINT_TIMER kconfig option to depend on RISCV_M_MODE in PATCH4
 - Added riscv,clint0 compatible string in DT bindings document

Anup Patel (4):
  RISC-V: Add mechanism to provide custom IPI operations
  clocksource/drivers: Add CLINT timer driver
  RISC-V: Remove CLINT related code from timer and arch
  dt-bindings: timer: Add CLINT bindings
