For my personnal information, are the arch_timer in the same power domain
than the CPU ? IOW, what is the 'always-on' property in the DT ?

Yes, unfortunately the SoC design on rk3288 and the previous ones do not
allow to use a cpuidle driver with cpu/cluster power down, so obviously the
broadcast timer is pointless on these boards :)

What are you trying to demonstrate here ? There are no interrupts for both
arch_timer and rk_timer.

What do you mean ?
