Hi James,

Thanks a lot for your submission! I'm glad to see interest in upstream
support for this SoC family. I have a few small comments on
details, mostly where I would either like to see an explanation
in the patch description, or things that looks like they can be
left out from the patch.

Please keep these lists in alphabetical order.

Can you explain why this is needed for your platform?

Please add "depends on ARCH_MULTI_V7" to avoid
compile time issues when selecting it on an earlier
architecture.

Almost all of the symbols above are implied by
ARCH_MULTI_V7 and should not be selected
separately.

As I understand, this chip uses a Cortex-A55. What is the reason
for adding support only to the 32-bit ARM architecture rather than
64-bit?

Most 64-bit SoCs are only supported with arch/arm64, but generally
speaking that is not a requirement. My rule of thumb is that on
systems with 1GB of RAM or more, one would want to run a 64-bit
kernel, while systems with less than that are better off with a 32-bit
one, but that is clearly not the only reason for picking one over the
other.

It's very unusual to see custom smp operations on an ARMv8
system, as we normally use PSCI here. Can you explain what
is going on here? Are you able to use a boot wrapper that implements
these in psci instead?

This needs a comment: Why do you require a static mapping for
"RBUS_BASE_PHYS"? Normally device drivers should just use
ioremap() for mapping whichever registers they want to access.

This should be taken care of by the
of_platform_default_populate_init() and can be dropped.

COMMON_CLK is implied by ARCH_MULTI_V7, so the
#ifdef can be dropped.

What do you need tick_setup_hrtimer_broadcast() for? I don't
see any other platform calling this.

I think this can also be dropped, as you set the smp_ops in the
machine descriptor.
