If the Allwinner CLINT is sufficiently compliant, this makes sense to me.

Will there be a new round of
[RFC PATCH v4 08/10] dt-bindings: timer: Add ACLINT MTIMER bindings
https://lore.kernel.org/all/20211007123632.697666-9-anup.patel@wdc.com/
were you could add the Allwinner device? Or is that series already merged?

Should the riscv,aclint-mtimer.yaml file mention that there are
different access sizes and either state per compatibility string what
that size is or provide a parameter for that purpose?

Best regards
