Subject: [PATCH v2 1/1] dt-bindings: reg-io-width for SiFive CLINT

The CLINT in the T-HEAD 9xx processors do not support 64bit mmio access to
the MTIMER device. The current schema does not allow to specify this.

OpenSBI currently uses a property 'clint,has-no-64bit-mmio' to indicate the
restriction. Samuael Holland suggested in
lib: utils/timer: Use standard property to specify 32-bit I/O
to use "reg-io-width = <4>;" as the reg-io-width property is generally used
in the devicetree schema for such a condition.

A release candidate of the ACLINT specification is available at

Add reg-io-width as optional property to the SiFive Core Local Interruptor.
Add a new compatible string "allwinner,sun20i-d1-clint" for the CLINT of
the Allwinner D1 SoC.
