[PATCH v2] clocksource/drivers/dw_apb_timer: Use {readl|writel}_relaxed

From: Jisheng Zhang
Date: Fri Nov 13 2015 - 07:35:37 EST

The driver is safe to use the relaxed version. From another side, the
relaxed io accessor macros are available on all architectures now, so
we can use the relaxed versions to get a trivial overall system
performance improvement and reduce the latency a bit on some

since v1:
- correct the wrong sentence in commit msg about writel performance on
CA9 with outer L2 cache. Thank Arnd for pointing out this in another
