No, the other patches I've yet to look at, and I think there's issues
still to be resolved.

Eg, ISTR a patch to make smp_twd.c selectable on non-SMP platforms so
that the mpcore watchdog can be used on non-SMP platforms. While that
fixes the build issues, functionally its broken. I don't think that
the mpcore watchdog should be asking the smp_twd code in any case for
the clock rate.

If we get the issue with knowing the TWD clock rate on ARMs development
platforms sorted out, then we can provide a struct clk for it, which
means everyone can finally move to using the clk API to get the mpcore
watchdog/twd clock rate.
