Do you receive any interrupt from the cadence_ttc ? (/proc/interrupts)

That's funny because I realize that you cadence ttc timer is never used
as there are the architected timers. The cadence ttc would be only
useful if there were an idle state powering down the smp_twd timers but
it is not the case on this board, IIUC.

Why do you need to reset them ?
