Subject: [PATCH 0/5] Dedicated CLINT timer driver

The current RISC-V timer driver is convoluted and implements two
distinct timers:
 1. S-mode timer: This is for Linux RISC-V S-mode with MMU. The
    clocksource is implemented using TIME CSR and clockevent device
    is implemented using SBI Timer calls.
 2. M-mode timer: This is for Linux RISC-V M-mode without MMU. The
    clocksource is implemented using CLINT MMIO time register and
    clockevent device is implemented using CLINT MMIO timecmp registers.

This patchset removes clint related code from RISC-V timer driver and
arch/riscv directory. Instead, the series adds a dedicated MMIO based
CLINT driver under drivers/clocksource directory which can be used by
Linux RISC-V M-mode (i.e NoMMU Linux RISC-V).

The patchset is based up Linux-5.7-rc6 and can be found at riscv_clint_v1
branch of: https://github.com/avpatel/linux.git

These patches require "New RISC-V Local Interrupt Controller Driver"
which can be found at at riscv_intc_v5 branch of:
https://github.com/avpatel/linux.git

This series is tested on:
 1. QEMU RV64 virt machine using Linux RISC-V S-mode
 2. QEMU RV32 virt machine using Linux RISC-V S-mode
 3. QEMU RV64 virt machine using Linux RISC-V M-mode (i.e. NoMMU)

Anup Patel (5):
  RISC-V: Add mechanism to provide custom IPI operations
  RISC-V: Remove CLINT related code
  clocksource/drivers/timer-riscv: Remove MMIO related stuff
  clocksource/drivers: Add CLINT timer driver
  dt-bindings: timer: Add CLINT bindings
