Add internal tick generator which is shared by all cores.
Each cluster of cores view it through dedicated address.
This is used for SMP system where all CPUs synced by same
clock source.

@Noam, AFAIKR, Daniel did ack the prev version - can you please double check and
repost this again.

@Daniel, this patch depends on a include/soc header introduced by patch 1/3 of the
series. For 4.7, how should we merge it - take both via ARC tree !

There are two ways to do this when there are multiple tree dependencies:
- put a common branch to be shared between trees
- ask for the maintainer for an acked-by and pick it in a single tree

Given the nature of the patch (initial submission), I agree you pick it through your tree.
