I think there is a misunderstanding.

When I want to compile on x64 all the timer drivers, I do enable
COMPILE_TEST, then the strings appear and the drivers can be selected.

If the COMPILE_TEST is not enabled, the string does not appear, it is
not possible to enable/disable it and the platform must enable it from
the aforementioned arch/csky/Konfig.

Actually, the timer drivers policy is : drivers can not be enabled from
the drivers/clocksource/Kconfig, it is up to the platform Kconfig to
select them. The exception is when the COMPILE_TEST option is set for
testing purpose.

The timer must compile on any other archs and the stubs for the platform
specific calls must be provided.

Did I miss something with your changes ?
