The clock for the architected timer(s) are supposed to be configured
before entering Linux. The clock-frequency property is at best a dodgy
workaround, and this is even worse.

Please fix your firmware to configure and enabled this clock before
entering Linux, and to program CNTFRQ appropriately.

As this path stands, NAK.

As a more general note, you *must* update device tree bidnings if adding
properties.

Thanks,
Mark.
