I don't see that very possible.
Or said another way, I don't see how the irq number, IRQ_OST0 (in mach/irqs.h)
can be guessed for non device-tree configuration.

For the cleanup, yes, will do.
For the watchdog I don't have any plan yet. This patch's purpose is only to
bring the PXA time source to drivers/clocksource, and make it compatible with
both device-tree and non device-tree builds.

OK, I'll add the backward compatibility explanation with non device-tree builds,
and the necessary timer_base iomem hard encoded value. And the Janus double face
explanation of the driver (both DT and non-DT oriented).
Another question brought up by this : if I remove all 'mach/' includes, I loose
io_p2v() right ? How can I guess timer_base then ?

Maybe not, I followed the same rationale as in orion-timer, which is :
- as this timer is the only possible timer for PXA boards, and because without
it the kernel boot will stall (scheduling will be blocked), it's better to
panic early that to remain stalled.
Isn't this a good approach ?
