I think most architectures don't run into this because they select
either GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS or ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET.

I thought that you need exactly one of the two (this is true on ARM),
but apparently ia64 is an exception.

I'm pretty sure that we don't ever need clocksource drivers on ia64,
so an easy workaround would be to make the entire file depend on
"!ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && !IA64", but we can probably
do better than that.

The only architectures that use neither GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS
nor ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET are frv, ia64 and some m68k
configurations. If we can show that none of those configurations
ever rely on clocksource drivers, we can simplify the
drivers/clocksource/Kconfig file a lot by using a
GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS for the top-level option and removing
all the other dependencies in there.
