I have next to no data sheets or documentation on the SoC itself. What
I know is from looking at old sources, which suggest there are more
than one timer (the rest were never implemented).

It only needs one for timer_tick? Does it make sense to just call it "timer"?

It's "Power Management Unit". The MMC driver uses it to read system
clock and write it to clock control, but I suspect it can be removed.
It's code under #ifdef MSD_SUPPORT_GET_CLOCK but I think the else is
perfectly acceptable.
GPIO uses it only to enable or disable pins.

Looks like this is no longer needed. Boots without it. Removed.

All removed. It boots after some additions to clocksource and irqchip.
arm_pm_restart is set in watchdog.

What I haven't commented on should already be fixed @

I'll send new patches.
