Not anymore :)

Probably I missed something in discussions.
As a matter of fact I did run-test resulting vmlinux and it worked very nice.
More over ARC_TIMERS_64BIT is selected automatically by ISA_ARCV2, see
http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/arch/arc/Kconfig#n119

That said even if "# CONFIG_ARC_TIMERS_64BIT is not set" is left in place the option will be
effectively enabled, no?
