yes. AM43xx is UP and supports ARM TWD, but there could be some 'issues' in !RT case :(

ARM TWD might be powered off in deep CPU Idle states and lose its context if !RT & CPUIDLE,
so there are should be backup broadcast timer configured. And that can cause build issues
related to tick_broadcast()->smp_cross_call().

I've solved it locally for OMAP2 only: commit 0b3e6fca4d1af4aa150d32506220f4241323a00c

^Just FYI. But may be it can be done in more generic way.
