I just tried barebox bootloader to use TWD as timer on berlin2cd and it
perfectly works, i.e. with time related commands I can see the timer
register decreasing. So the timer is available on this UP SoC.

As said before, compiling linux without CONFIG_SMP but with
CONFIG_HAVE_ARM_TWD gives:

warning: (SOC_OMAP5 && ARCH_ROCKCHIP && ARCH_SHMOBILE_MULTI &&
MACH_BERLIN_BG2 && MACH_BERLIN_BG2CD) selects HAVE_ARM_TWD which has
unmet direct dependencies (SMP)

and

arch/arm/kernel/smp_twd.c: In function 'twd_local_timer_of_register':
arch/arm/kernel/smp_twd.c:391: error: 'setup_max_cpus' undeclared (first
use in this function)
arch/arm/kernel/smp_twd.c:391: error: (Each undeclared identifier is
reported only once
arch/arm/kernel/smp_twd.c:391: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [arch/arm/kernel/smp_twd.o] Error 1

I haven't looked deeper into this, but I guess it will not be hard
to make ARM_TWD independent of SMP.
