+ default y if ARM_ARCH_TIMER
+ help
+ This option enables support for event stream generation based on
+ the ARM architected timer. It is used for waking up CPUs executing
+ the wfe instruction at a frequency represented as a power-of-2
+ divisor of the clock rate.
+ The main use of the event stream is wfe-based timeouts of userspace
+ locking implementations. It might also be useful for imposing timeout
+ on wfe to safeguard against any programming errors in case an expected
+ event is not generated.
+ This must be disabled for hardware validation purposes to detect any
+ hardware anomalies of missing events.
