[PATCHv2 1/3] plat-nomadik: MTU sched_clock as a config option

To make room for another sched_clk implementation a config
option is added around the sched_clk part of the MTU timer.
This makes it possible to configure away the sched_clk part.
An alternate sched_clk and clocksource is needed for the db8500
chip because the MTU is placed in a none always on power domain and will loose
power in some cpuidle sleep states.
