Oh, no. this is not how we handle these things.

1) We want proper constants for this 64bit IP block 

2) This is not a quirk, it's a property of that particular IP block

You already made the register offsets a part of the timer structure,
so why don't you supply a proper structure filled with that values to
the init function?

That's what we do all over the place. Either we instantiate those
structs at compile time or runtime fed by device tree or any other
configuration mechanism.

No. We are not adding such conditional constructs when we can deal
with them just by providing a proper set of function pointers. And
definitely not with hardcoded magic 0x4 constants involved.

     timer->load_count(timer, value);

Provide a 32 bit and a 64 bit version of that function and be done
with it.

Makes this copy go away.

And this one as well.

Copy and paste is a conveniant thing, right? It just should have a pop
up window assigned which asks at the second instance of copying the
same thing whether you really thought about it.

Thanks,
