I don't think this should be (purely) an arch thing. It's just as
much a driver issue. For example, HPET will pretty much work the same
on x86 and ia64, so being able to have a shared "driver" would be
useful. I agree though that it would be nice if arches that don't
care for time-interpolation at all could turn it off completely.
In the proposal below, an architecture could achieve that by turning
off CONFIG_TIME_INTERPOLATION.

That's not the issue, if I have only ONE way to do this on my
platform, I can INLINE this thing and I DO NOT need function
pointers.

I should have that option.
