The only reason RDC321x is not yet converted to using gpiolib is the small
number of actually accessible GPIOs, anyway, I will do the conversion soon.

This code is inherited from MIPS/ARM before GPIO lib, where generic assembly
headers provide prototypes for the usual GPIO functions. Boards override
those functions with their own copy of these GPIO functions.

Yes, I did not have time to investigate this, and am still wondering if we can
have dynamic tick rate settings in early board setup code.
