Subject[PATCH v6 0/7] clocksource: rework Atmel TCB timer driver

This series reworks the Atmel TCB drivers. It introduces a new driver to handle
the clocksource and clockevent devices.

As a reminder, this is necessary because:
- the current tcb_clksrc driver is probed too late to be able to be used at
boot and we now have SoCs that don't have a PIT. They currently are not able
to boot a mainline kernel.
- using the PIT doesn't work well with preempt-rt because its interrupt is
shared (in particular with the UART and their interrupt flags are
- the current solution is wasting some TCB channels

The plan is to get this driver upstream, then convert the TCB PWM driver to be
able to get rid of the tcb_clksrc driver along with atmel_tclib now that AVR32
is gone.

changes in v6:
- rebased on v4.19-rc1
- separated the clocksource/clockevent and the single clockevent in two
different patches
- removed struct tc_clkevt_device and simply use struct atmel_tcb_clksrc
- removed struct atmel_tcb_info
- moved tcb_clk_get and tcb_irq_get to users

changes in v5:
- rebased on v4.18-rc1
- fixed the clock enabling/disabling in atomic context under preempt-rt

Changes in v4:
- rebased on top of v4.17-rc1
- fixed an issue when setting max_delta for clockevents_config_and_register

Alexandre Belloni (7):
ARM: at91: add TCB registers definitions
clocksource/drivers: Add a new driver for the Atmel ARM TC blocks
clocksource/drivers: timer-atmel-tcb: add clockevent device on
separate channel
clocksource/drivers: atmel-pit: make option silent
ARM: at91: Implement clocksource selection
ARM: configs: at91: use new TCB timer driver
ARM: configs: at91: unselect PIT
