Subject: [PATCH v3 0/7] clocksource: Fix MIPS GIC and DW APB Timer for Baikal-T1 SoC support

From: Serge Semin <>

As for all Baikal-T1 SoC related patchsets, which need this, we replaced
the DW APB Timer legacy plain text-based dt-binding file with DT schema.
Similarly the MIPS GIC bindings file is also converted to DT schema seeing
it also defines the MIPS GIC Timer binding.

Aside from MIPS-specific r4k timer Baikal-T1 chip also provides a
functionality of two another timers: embedded into the MIPS GIC timer and
three external DW timers available over APB bus. But we can't use them
before the corresponding drivers are properly fixed. First of all DW APB
Timer shouldn't be bound to a single CPU, since as being accessible over
APB they are external with respect to all possible CPUs. Secondly there
might be more than just two DW APB Timers in the system (Baikal-T1 has
three of them), so permit the driver to use one of them as a clocksource
and the rest - for clockevents. Thirdly it's possible to use MIPS GIC
timer as a clocksource so register it in the corresponding subsystem
(the patch has been found in the Paul Burton MIPS repo so I left the
original Signed-off-by attribute). Finally in the same way as r4k timer
the MIPS GIC timer should be used with care when CPUFREQ config is enabled
since in case of CM2 the timer counting depends on the CPU reference clock
frequency while the clocksource subsystem currently doesn't support the
timers with non-stable clock.

This patchset is rebased and tested on the mainline Linux kernel 5.7-rc4:
0e698dfa2822 ("Linux 5.7-rc4")
tag: v5.7-rc4

Changelog v2:
- Fix the SoB tags.
- Our corporate email server doesn't change Message-Id anymore, so the
  patchset is resubmitted being in the cover-letter-threaded format.
- Convert the "snps,dw-apb-timer" binding to DT schema in a dedicated
- Convert the "mti,gic" binding to DT schema in a dedicated patch.

Changelog v3:
- Make the MIPS GIC timer sub-node name not having a unit-address number.
- Discard allOf: [ $ref: /schemas/interrupt-controller.yaml# ] from MIPS
  GIC bindings.
- Add patch moving the "snps,dw-apb-timer" binding file to the directory
  with timers binding files.
