The architected timer binding was created at a time I wasn't involved in kernel
development, and I'm not aware of any particular reasoning. I've heard that
there was a decision to not duplicate banked resources, which would explain not
having the timer under /cpus/cpu@N, but doesn't imply that having it under
/cpus is bad.

Do we have precedent for putting any devices other than CPUs in /cpus?

Thanks,
Mark.
