Subject[PATCH 3/3] x86: hpet: stop HPET_COUNTER when programming periodic mode

Impact: fix system hang on some systems operating with HZ_1000

On a system that stalled with HZ_1000, the first value written to
T0_CMP (when the main counter was not stopped) did not trigger an
interrupt. Instead after the main counter wrapped around (after
several minutes) an interrupt was triggered and afterwards the
periodic interrupt took effect.

This can be fixed by implementing HPET spec recommendation for
programming the periodic mode (i.e. stopping the main counter).
