i8253 clocksource needs a free running timer. This could only
be used, if i8253 clockevent is set up as periodic.

Paul,

can you take it into 5.3 ? This fixes a boot ang on mips/jazz and
is the same as x86 does for quite some time.

Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessarily a
good idea.                                                [ RFC1925, 2.3 ]

Applied to mips-fixes.

Thanks,
