This patch set introduces DT-aware irqchip and clocksource drivers for
Marvell Orion SoCs (Kirkwood, Dove, Orion5x, MV78x00) and corresponding
patches for Dove and Kirkwood to enable them for DT-boards.

The irqchip driver, of course, depends on Thomas Gleixner's work on
irqdomain support for generic chip (tip irq/core).

The ARM part of this patch set has a quite ridiculuous dependency havoc
of mv643xx_eth DT support (current net-next) that will add to both irqchip
and clocksource branches respectively. Therefore, I suggest that irq
and clocksource maintainers take in the mere drivers (Patches 1+2) and
Jason Cooper handles the remaining patches when all three drivers have
surfaced on mainline linux.

Sebastian Hesselbarth (6):
irqchip: add support for Marvell Orion SoCs
clocksource: add Marvell Orion SoC timer
ARM: dove: move device tree nodes to DT irqchip and clocksource
ARM: kirkwood: move device tree nodes to DT irqchip and clocksource
ARM: dove: convert to DT irqchip and clocksource
ARM: kirkwood: convert to DT irqchip and clocksource

I've done some tests on my Kirkwood Openblocks A6 using the latest
branch orion-irqchip-for-v3.11-v4. Everything works fine so:

Ezequiel, thanks for testing!

For patches 3 to 6 I'm wondering if there's any reason why the irqchip and
clocksource changes are not separated. I'm probably being too picky but,
unless you have a good reason for having them together,
I think they should go separated, i.e. patches for irqchip on one side,
and patches for clocksource on the other.

The only reason is that when switching from current non-irqdomain irq
controller to irqdomain-based above, there is no 1:1 mapping between
irq numbers and hwirqs anymore. But you are right, for the ARM part
patches that will be merged first thing when v3.11-rc1 is out, the
correct order is mv643xx_eth, clocksource, irqchip.

I will prepare new, rebased patches for Jason Cooper then anyway.

With Thomas Gleixner's Review now only somebody has to take the irqchip
patch then all three drivers are queued for next release.
