I think Alexander didn't know which timer name to use.
Both the rk3228 and rk3229 are so similar that so far no-one has seen any 
difference and thus they really share the whole rk322x.dtsi file.

On the other hand compatibles are supposed to be explicit, so a rk322x-timer 
compatible is not allowed.


But as the socs are soooo similar, I'd suggest just using the rk3228-timer 
compatible in the rk322x.dtsi and not changing individual board files.
Similar to what Daniel suggested.
