[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] xen/arm: Blacklist the memory mapped timer (armv7-timer-mem)

Some platform (such as the VFP Base AEMv8 model) has a memory mapped
timer. We don't want DOM0 use this timer rather than the generic ARM
timer. So blacklist it for all platforms.

Signed-off-by: Julien Grall <julien.grall@xxxxxxxxxx>

    This patch is candidate to backport for Xen 4.5 and Xen 4.4.

    It may not apply correctly for Xen 4.4.

    Changes in v2:
        - Add a comment in the code to explain why we need to blacklist
        memory mapped timer
