That's TI specific.

Please make this DT schema format.

The order here is wrong. Should be most specific first.

Drop 'omap-' from the compatible.

Just drop these.

Drop this. Which compatible an OS matches on is not relevant to the
binding. And 'temporarily' is wrong as the SoC specific compatible
strings are what are used for handling errata or other integration
specific things.

How many?

If only 1 as the example suggests, then you don't need this.

Needs a better description and vendor prefix at least.

Why is this needed rather than using the OS's timers?

Not discoverable?

This is TI specific and this binding covers other chips in theory at
least. This part is outside the scope

How does it work that these registers overlap the GPU registers?
