Version 0.183/0.183o turns the periodic resync timer into a timer only
launched when actual DVFS frequency change occurs (it is used to ensure
very frequent DVFS freq. change do not generate a high rate of 32k clock
reads).

Also, I don't want to take any chance, and therefore don't assume the
ccnt register is stopped in idle. This version now additionally makes
sure to stop the ccnt register when going to idle/sleep.
