Hi Richard,

I am not expert in DT.I didn't get your point of using timer resource in the DT.  Yes, the timer resource is
Part of FEC IP hardware. But if you want to choose one channel for using PPS, you have to add another property
to specify. Do you mean the current code already have the DT property to specify the channel?

Thanks
Luwei
