[PATCH 4.8 65/92] Revert "clocksource/drivers/timer_sun5i: Replace code by clocksource_mmio_init"

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

4.8-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Chen-Yu Tsai <wens@xxxxxxxx>

commit 593876838826914a7e4e05fbbcb728be6fbc4d89 upstream.

struct clocksource is also used by the clk notifier callback, to
unregister and re-register the clocksource with a different clock rate.
clocksource_mmio_init does not pass back a pointer to the struct used,
and the clk notifier callback assumes that the struct clocksource in
struct sun5i_timer_clksrc is valid. This results in a kernel NULL
pointer dereference when the hstimer clock is changed:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000004

Revert the commit for now. clocksource_mmio_init can be made to pass back
a pointer, but the code churn and usage of an inner struct might not be
worth it.
