As the clock must be ready before the TIMER_OF_DECLARE, so adding a CLK_OF_DECLARE_DRIVER in
clock driver to ONLY register a fixed-clock? The system counter's frequency are different on different
platforms, so adding fixed clock in system counter driver is NOT a good idea, ONLY the DT node or the
clock driver can create this fixed clock according to platforms, can you advise where to create this fixed
clock is better?

Thanks,
Anson
