Even the Integrator is very similar, albeit using register 0x28 instead
of register 0x5c. cd commit

It's one of these things where writing a device driver results in
more code than just registering this counter with the sched_clock
guts :-/

Getting the clock from the DT gives this nice feeling of having it all
complete, and sched_clock cannot really change frequency anyway
so I'm happy with this thing.

I'll augment it for Integrator when/if I find time.
