There are tons of boards out there that need to use the
high frequency ocillator source with gptimer because of the
beagleboard B4 and earlier issue #7. So we need to provide
both options for the boards. Using the high frequency
oscillator source blocks deeper idle states in hardware
so those devices are usable.
