That maybe - and for TWD which is used for local timer purposes only,
that's fine. What wouldn't be fine is if your clocksource counter
In any case, I'm not sure that passing in a struct clk pointer is
really the right way to go - the point of the clk API is to remove
such passing of static structures.
How about instead using clk_get_sys() to obtain a clock for the TWD?
Do we need separate connection IDs for each TWD, or are all TWDs in
a system always clocked together?
