Hi Daniel,

exynos_mct.c driver looks more complex as it supports two types of timer
interrupts - private and shared peripheral interrupts (for exynos4412
and exynos4210 accordingly). In smp_twd.c driver I can see only PPI type
of irqs supported. SPI and PPI irqs differs slightly in setup - thus two
different code paths appears in the driver in initialization and
handling of CPU notifications. The fix is addressing issue that appears
only for hardware using SPI irqs so it is hard to compare it to
smp_twd.c.
BTW, If we remove support for SPI irqs in exynos_mct.c it would look
almost the same as smp_twd.c.

Best Regards,
Damian
