Until now, the devfreq driver using polling mode like simple_ondemand
governor have used only deferrable timer for reduing the redundant
power consumption. It reduces the CPU wake-up from idle due to polling mode
which check the status of Non-CPU device.

But, it has a problem for Non-CPU device like DMC device with DMA operation.
Some Non-CPU device need to do monitor continously regardless of CPU state
in order to decide the proper next status of Non-CPU device.

So, add support the dealyed timer for polling mode to support
the periodical monitoring. The devfreq driver and user can select
the kind of timer on either deferrable and delayed timer.

For example, change the timer type of DMC device
based on Exynos5422-based Odroid-XU3 as following:

- If want to use deferrable timer as following:
echo deferrable > /sys/class/devfreq/10c20000.memory-controller/timer

- If want to use delayed timer as following:
echo delayed > /sys/class/devfreq/10c20000.memory-controller/timer
