Dear All,

This patchset is an attempt to submit the last piece of missing code
to have proper support for Exynos5433 SoCs based TM2(e) boards. It
performs a cleanup of timer configuration, which so far needed various
out-of-tree workarounds. The fixes provided by this patchset are also
needed for add proper support for system suspend/resume.

Best regards

- fixes lack of fixup in patch #3, pointed by Krzysztof Kozlowski

- added patch, which splits resources and interrupts allocation
- simplified arch timer cooperation mode
- dropped CPU hotplug priority change patch, it is not really needed
- removed more non-dt dead code

- dropped arch timer patch, it will be discussed separately
- fixed issues pointed by Krzysztof Kozlowski

v1: https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-samsung-soc/list/?series=27965&state=*&archive=both
