This patch boots up fine on tile. It provides a shift count of 31, with a
mult value in the billions. This does mean that clocksource_cyc2ns() will
only be able to give correct timer conversions for up to about 9 seconds.
Is this believed to be adequate for all the uses the cycle counter is put
to? I can run our normal regression tests, but I'd like to get a
high-level sanity check from the clocksource folks.

The original shift of 22 was put in by commit
749dc6f252b57d5cb9c1f4c1c4aafe4c92a28207 back in August.
