Separate patch please.

Why is this needed? This looks like you are trying to assign certain
timers to clocksource and clockevent. A common problem, but one that
should be decided by describing h/w features. There must be some
property present or missing to make you decide to use a given channel or
not.

It's curious that you have timer0 and timer1 here and then channels 0
and 1 below. Would your clocks change if you use channel 2 for example?
The binding should be a list of clock connections in the h/w, not
just what the driver needs or what the used h/w configuration is.
