As you said, it accesses registers iomapped by timer code. So the
watchdog
driver doesn't need to iomap them.

The whole 'for-upstream-clocksource' branch is supposed to go upstream,
but I can't do it in one big patchset without having lots of breakages
with
my other patchsets (jz4770 SoC support, and jz4740 watchdog updates)
currently under review. That also makes it simpler to upstream than
having
one single patchset that touches 6 different frameworks (MIPS, irq,
clocks,
clocksource, watchdog, PWM).

So I will submit it in two steps, first the irq/clocks/clocksource
drivers
(this patchset) hopefully for 4.16, and then the platform/watchdog/PWM
fixes
for 4.17.

Kind regards,
-Paul
