Subject[PATCH 0/2] Allwinner A64 timer workaround
Date
Hello,

Several people (including me) have experienced extremely large system
clock jumps on their A64-based devices, apparently due to the
architectural timer going backward, which is interpreted by Linux as
the timer wrapping around after 2^56 cycles.

Investigation led to discovery of some obvious problems with this SoC's
architectural timer, and this patch series introduces what I believe is
the simplest workaround. More details are in the commit message for
patch 1. Patch 2 simply enables the workaround in the device tree.

Thanks,
Samuel
