Subject[PATCH v2 00/18] clocksource/arch_timer: Errata workaround infrastructure rework
It has recently become obvious that a number of arm64 systems have
been blessed with a set of timers that are slightly less than perfect,
and require a bit of hand-holding. We already have a bunch of
errata-specific code to deal with this, but as we're adding more
potential detection methods (DT, ACPI, capability), things are getting
a bit out of hands.

Instead of adding more ad-hoc fixes to an already difficult code base,
let's give ourselves a bit of an infrastructure that can deal with
this and hide most of the uggliness behind frendly accessors.

The series is structured as such:

- A bunch of arm64 specific patches that allow the rest of the
workaround infrastructure to be built upon (such as being able to
trap userspace access to the virtual counter). These are now
separate in order to allow the creation of a shared branch between
the arm64 and clocksource trees.

- The following patches rework the existing workarounds, allowing
errata to be matched using a given detection method

- Another patch allows a workaround to affect a subset of the CPUs,
and not the whole system

- We then work around a Cortex-A73 erratum, whose counter can return a
wrong value if read while crossing a 32bit boundary

- Finally, we add some ACPI-specific workarounds for HiSilicon
platforms that have the HISILICON_ERRATUM_161010101 defect.

Note that so far, we only deal with arm64. Once the infrastructure is
agreed upon, we can look at generalizing it (to some extent) to 32bit
ARM (typical use case would be a 32bit guest running on an affected

* From v1:
- Addressed Hanjun and Mark review comments
- Moved arm64 specific patches to the beginning of the series,
leaving the clocksource patches at the end, resulting in an extra
- Added RBs, TBs, and Acks.
