Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] arm: mvebu: add support for local timer for Armada 370/XP

The Armada XP SoCs comes with private timers. This allows us to use
local timers through CONFIG_LOCAL_TIMERS and as stated in the kconfig
help, it prevents a "thundering herd" at every timer tick.

Armada 370 also have these private timers, and even if it comes only
with a single CPU, the feature is also enabled for this SoC to keep
the code generic.

In order to be able to use the local timer, I also had to add the
support for the per-CPU interrupts.

There are not many changes since the first version (see the changelog
below), I hope it means that everybody is happy with this patch
set. If it is, so please could you give your acked-by. I especially
expect the acked-by from John Stultz then I will feel more comfortable
to ask Jason to pull it.

This patch set is based on 3.8-rc4 and is obviously 3.9 material. The
git branch called local_timer is available at:


- Fixed unneeded empty line and wrong indentation.
- Made percpu_armada_370_xp_evt a static variable
- Removed the patch "arm: kconfig: don't select TWD with local timer
for Armada 370/XP" from the series. There is still some improvement
possible in this area, but this patch set not depends on it.
