Looking at your current Nomadik code, it seems I can literally should
just add this flag (done), without needing to implement any new hooks.

On a related topic, how do we determine the cpumask? Downstream and some
in-tree drivers use cpumask_of(0), others use cpu_possible_mask.

Found it myself: I forgot to clear the interrupt pending bit in the
interrupt handler routine.

+       writel(OWL_Tx_CTL_PD, owl_timer_base + OWL_T1_CTL);

Now it goes past this point, initializes the real serial driver and
boots up to not finding the rootfs:

[    0.000032] sched_clock: 32 bits at 24MHz, resolution 41ns, wraps
every 89478484971ns
[    0.007898] clocksource: timer: mask: 0xffffffff max_cycles:
0xffffffff, max_idle_ns: 79635851949 ns
[    0.017886] Console: colour dummy device 80x30
[    0.022386] Calibrating delay loop... 405.50 BogoMIPS (lpj=2027520)
[    0.083523] pid_max: default: 32768 minimum: 301
...
