When you submit a patch that moves files around, please use the '-M' flag to
git-format-patch so we can see the actual changes instead of a file being
removed and another one added.

Moving it is certainly the right direction, but I think we need a better way to
handle those forward declarations. "struct sys_timer" is actually an ARM specific
structure, so we might just want to add all the forward declarations for the
timers into arch/arm/include/asm/mach/time.h. It's not ideal to do it like that,
but I think it's much better than having a new globally visible header for
each timer that is used on ARM.
Eventually, we might want to do something similar to what we are discussing
for the top-level IRQ controllers at the moment, where we just autodetect them
from DT if possible, so we don't need to have any pointer to the timer from
arch code at all.
