We add DT bindings documentation for the ACLINT MTIMER device
found on RISC-V SOCs.

+title: RISC-V ACLINT M-level Timer

+
+description:
+  RISC-V SOCs include an implementation of the M-level timer (MTIMER) defined
+  in the RISC-V Advanced Core Local Interruptor (ACLINT) specification. The
+  ACLINT MTIMER device is documented in the RISC-V ACLINT specification found
+  at https://github.com/riscv/riscv-aclint/blob/main/riscv-aclint.adoc.
+
+  The ACLINT MTIMER device directly connects to the M-level timer interrupt
+  lines of various HARTs (or CPUs) so the RISC-V per-HART (or per-CPU) local
+  interrupt controller is the parent interrupt controller for the ACLINT
+  MTIMER device.
+
+  The clock frequency of ACLINT is specified via "timebase-frequency" DT
+  property of "/cpus" DT node. The "timebase-frequency" DT property is
+  described in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/riscv/cpus.yaml
+
+properties:
+  compatible:
+    items:
+      - const: riscv,aclint-mtimer
+
+    description:
+      Should be "<vendor>,<chip>-aclint-mtimer" and "riscv,aclint-mtimer".
