CLOCK_TICK_RATE is only used in a few places:

drivers/char/vt_ioctl.c: arg = CLOCK_TICK_RATE / arg;
drivers/char/vt_ioctl.c: count = CLOCK_TICK_RATE / count;
drivers/clocksource/acpi_pm.c: ((CALIBRATE_LATCH * (PMTMR_TICKS_PER_SEC >> 10)) / (CLOCK_TICK_RATE>>10))
drivers/input/joystick/analog.c:#define DELTA(x,y) (cpu_has_tsc ? ((y) - (x)) : ((x) - (y) + ((x) < (y) ? CLOCK_TICK_RATE / HZ : 0
drivers/rtc/rtc-pxa.c:#define TIMER_FREQ CLOCK_TICK_RATE
drivers/serial/serial_ks8695.c: .uartclk = CLOCK_TICK_RATE * 16,
drivers/watchdog/davinci_wdt.c: timer_margin = (((u64)heartbeat * CLOCK_TICK_RATE) & 0xffffffff);
drivers/watchdog/davinci_wdt.c: timer_margin = (((u64)heartbeat * CLOCK_TICK_RATE) >> 32);
drivers/watchdog/ks8695_wdt.c: unsigned long tval = wdt_time * CLOCK_TICK_RATE;
include/linux/jiffies.h:#define LATCH ((CLOCK_TICK_RATE + HZ/2) / HZ) /* For divider */
include/linux/jiffies.h:#define ACTHZ (SH_DIV (CLOCK_TICK_RATE, LATCH, 8))
include/linux/timex.h: * Moved CLOCK_TICK_RATE, CLOCK_TICK_FACTOR and FINETUNE to asm/timex.h
sound/oss/pas2_pcm.c: foo = ((CLOCK_TICK_RATE / 2) + (arg / 2)) / arg;
sound/oss/pas2_pcm.c: arg = ((CLOCK_TICK_RATE / 2) + (foo / 2)) / foo;
sound/oss/pas2_pcm.c: foo = (CLOCK_TICK_RATE + (arg / 2)) / arg;
sound/oss/pas2_pcm.c: arg = (CLOCK_TICK_RATE + (foo / 2)) / foo;
All of these are either PC-specific, or they don't actually care
about the specific value. Most architectures just use the
value from the IBM PC, so we might as well make that the generic
default.

Alternatively, we could also move the definition back to linux/timex.h
and allow asm/timex.h to be empty.
