Can you be more specific about what you are looking for here?

Shall I just say that the frequency property is now deprecated since
it actually belongs to the external clock whose association with a
kona timer instance might be declared in the DT using the common clock
bindings but could also be declared through other means?

The timer block relies upon a single clock and does not use any regulators.

Sure that sounds fine.

I completely agree that this driver could be improved. However, this
is unrelated to the topic of this series so I will address it later in
a separate patch.
