No problem, I understand.

Giving so, whit these proposals I'm thinking at having something like this,
using Alexandre's new macros from [2] and passing a bitmask to timer's
probing functions (in the above example adapted only for pit64b driver
introduced in this thread):

The only downside of this is that we're parsing these new DT bindings before
calling probe function, then we're checking the result of parsing again, in
probe function, and I'm thinking if it wouldn't be simpler to just parse these
binding in timer's probe function as all the other DT bindings are parsed
(moreover all timers probing functions should be changes to get this new argument).

More than this I see that there is one timer driver which is not probed via
timer_probe() (I'm pointing to drivers/clocksource/numachip.c).

Please let me know what do you think about it.

Thank you,
Claudiu Beznea
