Hmm but without this patch we stop the timer so enable bit is
cleared before we ever save context. I think now we can have
enable bit still on, save the context, and keep restoring the
enable bit that never has a chance to clear if we do this at
a fast enough rate.

Well they seem to be the same as in the dump above, here are the regs
dumped after use with chirping happening:

$ sudo rwmem 0x4803e000+0x60
0x4803e000 = 0x4fff1301
0x4803e004 = 0000000000
0x4803e008 = 0000000000
0x4803e00c = 0000000000
0x4803e010 = 0x0000000c
0x4803e014 = 0000000000
0x4803e018 = 0000000000
0x4803e01c = 0000000000
0x4803e020 = 0000000000
0x4803e024 = 0x00000003
0x4803e028 = 0000000000
0x4803e02c = 0000000000
0x4803e030 = 0000000000
0x4803e034 = 0000000000
0x4803e038 = 0x00001841
0x4803e03c = 0x00000402
0x4803e040 = 0xfffffeb8
0x4803e044 = 0xffffffff
0x4803e048 = 0000000000
0x4803e04c = 0xfffffffe
0x4803e050 = 0000000000
0x4803e054 = 0000000000
0x4803e058 = 0000000000
0x4803e05c = 0000000000

$ sudo rwmem 0x4013e000+0x60
0x4013e000 = 0x4fff0301
0x4013e004 = 0000000000
0x4013e008 = 0000000000
0x4013e00c = 0000000000
0x4013e010 = 0000000000
0x4013e014 = 0000000000
0x4013e018 = 0000000000
0x4013e01c = 0000000000
0x4013e020 = 0000000000
0x4013e024 = 0x00000003
0x4013e028 = 0000000000
0x4013e02c = 0000000000
0x4013e030 = 0000000000
0x4013e034 = 0000000000
0x4013e038 = 0x00001841
0x4013e03c = 0x00000407
0x4013e040 = 0xfffffeb8
0x4013e044 = 0xffffffff
0x4013e048 = 0000000000
0x4013e04c = 0xfffffffe
0x4013e050 = 0000000000
0x4013e054 = 0000000000
0x4013e058 = 0000000000
0x4013e05c = 0000000000

So looks like the enable bit is never cleared now.

Hmm yeah not sure what could be used to clear things
when the current cycle is completed unless there's
some interrupt for it.

Regards,

Tony
