So it should backward compatible with "nvidia,tegra30-timer", which is tegra_wdt driver now. And Tegra132 should never use this driver.

It looks to me that right now tegra20-timer exposes only a single-shared timer to the system [please correct me if I'm wrong]. Wouldn't make sense at least to give a timer per CPU core?

That would be great, thank you.
