Thanks for your reply.

I will keep these lists in alphabetical order in new version patch.

We need to reserve memory (0x00000000 ~ 0x001B0000) for rom and boot code.

I will add "depends on ARCH_MULTI_V7" in new version patch.

OK, I understand.

The RTD16XX platform also support the 64-bit ARM architecture.
I will add the 64-bit ARM architecture in new version patch.

Support 32-bit ARM architecture is for application compatibility.

The smp operations is porting form other Realtek platform.

Currently, The RTD16XX platform can use the PSCI method.
I will add PSCI method in new version patch.

The static mapping is for old Realtek devices driver.
I will 'use ioremap()' to replace with static mapping.

I will remove rtk_dt_init() in new version patch.

OK, I understand.

I want to initialize the HR timer.
