The RISC-V kernel code does in fact parse it and use it, and we currently
rely on it being under /cpus:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/arch/riscv/kernel/time.c#n19

The RISC-V user ISA specification also constrains the timebase-frequency
to be the same across all CPUs, in section 10.1:

https://github.com/riscv/riscv-isa-manual/releases/download/draft-20190608-f467e5d/riscv-spec.pdf

So the right thing is to require 'timebase-frequency' at /cpus, and forbid
it in the individual CPU nodes.
