Thanks, we will address this in V7.

Well, yes I think that would be possible, but since this will be run on the emulator,
fixed-clock may not be the best because the point of this code is to make emulator
calibrate itself according to speed of the host which runs the emulation.
We may consider more advanced approach on this issue in the future, but for now
this works fine for us.

We can not remove the forward declaration because we need to define
__mips_mach_ranchu (which is done by MIPS_MACHINE(ranchu)) before ranchu_of_match.

Kind regards,
Miodrag

You should also include asm/mipsregs.h for read_c0_count(), even though it's
presumably being pulled in indirectly as-is.

Would it be possible to have the emulator write the frequency into the
devicetree, as the frequency of a fixed-clock used as the CPU's clock? If that
were possible then there'd be no need for this board setup code at all. Not a
big deal, but it'd be nice.

Could you move ranchu_of_match before the MIPS_MACHINE & drop the forward
declaration? That would feel tidier to me. It could also be marked as
__initdata.

In general though, with those & James' comments addressed, I think this is
looking good.

Thanks,
