Not necessarily for all the systems. For omap2+ we should be able to
boot the system initially with the perf counter as the clockevent and
32KiHz always running timer. Then a dmtimer using proper clockevent
driver could take over.

What else are you aware of that is really needed early for clocks other
than clockevent?

We've already proven that SRAM init can be moved to happen later. The
optional debug serial port is already enabled by the bootloader.

Regards,

Tony
