If the clock-frequency property is present in the host DT then that
would imply that secure world is not setting CNTFRQ or is setting it
wrong (since the property is effectively a workaround for that exact
bug). Perhaps we should propagate it if it is present?

Perhaps make_timer_node should insert the property iff the host dt has
it? Will one of you role a patch? (Suriyan, see
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Submitting_Xen_Patches for advice if you device
to do it).

While grepping about this I noticed that make_timer_node doesn't use
DT_MATCH_TIMER, which I guess is just an accidental oversight, perhaps
if someone is fixing the clock-frequency issue they could throw in a
second patch for this too?
