[PATCH 0/2] Drivers: hv: Move Hyper-V clock/timer code to separate clocksource driver

This patch series moves Hyper-V clock/timer code to a separate Hyper-V
clocksource driver. Previously, Hyper-V clock/timer code and data
structures were mixed in with other Hyper-V code in the ISA independent
drivers/hv code as well as in arch dependent code. The new Hyper-V
clocksource driver is ISA independent, with a just few dependencies on
arch specific functions. The patch series does not change any behavior
or functionality -- it only reorganizes the existing code and fixes up
the linkages. A few places outside of Hyper-V code are fixed up to use
the new #include file structure.

This restructuring is in response to Marc Zyngier's review comments
on supporting Hyper-V running on ARM64, and is a good idea in general.
It increases the amount of code shared between the x86 and ARM64
architectures, and reduces the size of the new code for supporting
Hyper-V on ARM64. A new version of the Hyper-V on ARM64 patches will
follow once this clocksource restructuring is accepted.

The code is currently diff'ed against Linux 5.0.  I'll rebase
to linux-next once 5.1-rc1 is available.
