It's documented in the OMAP5910 Timer Reference Guide (SPRU682A) Section 3
"32-kHz Timer", at the link Jon mentioned. Have not checked the errata
that Jon mentioned though.

Regarding the patch: I'd suggest keeping the compilation warning fixes
(which was the original purpose of the patch) from anything that changes
the logic too much. That way if there's an error in the patch that
changes the logic and it needs to be reverted, it won't also revert the
warning fixes.
