[PATCH v2 0/4] Armada XP clocks for timer

After the recent discussion on the device tree binding for the Armada 370/XP
clocksource driver, Stephen Warren, Tomasz Figa and others suggested
that the reference 25 MHz fixed-clock (aka refclk) should have a proper
device tree representation.

(Although that's still debatable, given the 25 MHz fixed-clock seems to be
used only by the timer/watchdog IP block.)

In addition to that and to be accurate, both timer clock inputs: nbclk and
refclk should be exposed in the DT node for the Armada XP timer.

Following an excellent suggestion from Sebastian Hesselbarth, here's a
patchset to accurately model the clock inputs for the timer.

Considering this is very minor improvemente from my previous patchset [1],
I dare ask about v3.12 inclusion. On the other side, maybe it's too late already
and it's best to keep it for v3.13.

Patches 1 and 2 apply on v3.11-rc4 plus the commit:
"ARM: mvebu: Fix the Armada 370/XP timer compatible strings"
that's already in mvebu/dt.

Patch 3 and 4 applies on tip/timers/core plus the recent series [1].

Changes from v1:

  * Improve the devicetree binding as the requirements were very
    badly stated.

Ezequiel Garcia (4):
  ARM: mvebu: Add the reference 25 MHz fixed-clock to Armada XP
  ARM: mvebu: Add clock properties to Armada XP timer node
  clocksource: armada-370-xp: Get reference fixed-clock by name
  clocksource: armada-370-xp: Add detailed clock requirements in
    devicetree binding
