The Kconfig options for the asm9260 timer is wrong as it can be selected by
another platform with allyes config and thus leading to a compilation failure

Fix this by having the platform Kconfig to select the timer as it is done for
the others drivers.

the thing is, this SoC or this company has no own IP cores. All of them
are from other companies and providers, including this timer. This is
why all modules for this SoC are selectable.

Maybe the modules should be selected by the architectures using the IP cores ?

At the moment of pushing patches to arch/arm, maintainers preferred to
have minimalistic Kconfig.

Either case, we'll need _some_ fix upstream, whatever is acceptable for the

What is with initial white list patch?

The Kconfig policy for the timers is to let the arch to select the timer they need and not enable them from the clocksource/Kconfig file. That is the general policy even there are a couple of exceptions.

So if you are ok with the patch I sent I will merge it as a fix.
