I'm pretty sure this is the debounce for the NMI and the SoC reset signal, not
the pinctrl. The pinctrl debounce clock pretty clearly references 32 kHz.

Plus RC16M/IOSC (and depending on how you look at it, DCXO24M/HOSC).

Do you suggest we fix this for the existing bindings?

This is my fault for not sending anything yet. Since the initial version of the
driver had the RTC providing HOSC, it depended on converting the existing A100,
H6, and H616 CCU drivers to use .fw_name for parents, since those drivers
hardcode two different global names for HOSC. And I had no opportunit to do that
yet.

However, I should really send something that 100% matches the current binding
for SoCs where that exists (i.e. osc24M is a fixed clock), and doing so is a
smaller job.

On the other hand, having osc24M as an RTC *output* neatly sidesteps the fact
that it has been missing from the input list :)

(But on the other-other hand, A50 gets even more fun, as the HOSC crystal may
not be 24MHz anymore. So the RTC has to choose one of three possible HOSC->LOSC
dividers based on the HOSC frequency. But there is no register for HOSC
frequency. So in this case it is convenient to have HOSC as a separate fixed
clock input.)

The basic idea of my patch is that using the CCU library code lets us cleanly
have slightly different clock trees for each of the RTC variants that Allwinner
comes up with.

The secondary goal is to add support for osc32k calibration.

An early version of the patch is here[1], and I will send something as soon as I
have made the modifications described above. But I know you were skeptical about
moving the clock part out of the RTC driver. So if you NACK that, somebody will
have to add all of the variants to the RTC driver.

Regards,
Samuel
