These two patches try to improve the dw_apb_timer clocksource/clockevent

since v2:
 - only use relaxed version in critical path
 - inline apbt_readl/apbt_writel
 - add some performance numbers

since v1:
 - correct the wrong sentence in commit msg about writel performance on
   CA9 with outer L2 cache. Thank Arnd for pointing out this in another

Jisheng Zhang (2):
  clocksource/drivers/dw_apb_timer: Inline apbt_readl and apbt_writel
  clocksource/drivers/dw_apb_timer: Use {readl|writel}_relaxed in
    critical path
