arm-global-timer can provide clockevents, clocksource and shed_clock. But
on rk3188 platform it provide only clocksource and shed_clock. clockevents
from  arm-global-timer is not used by kernel because there is another
clockevent provider with higher rating (smp-twd).

My commit from the series implement clocksource and shed_clock using
rockchip_timer. But sched clock from rk_timer is not selected by kernel
due to lower frequency than arm-global-timer, and clocksource from
rk_timer is not selected by kernel due to lower rating than
arm-global-timer. And I don't want to increase clocksource rating
because ratings greater 300 used for high frequency clocksources.

clocksource and shed_clock is quite unstable, because their rate depends
on cpu frequency. So disable arm-global-timer and use clocksource and
sched_clock from rockchip_timer.

That commit message is hard to understand in its entirety, but this last 
paragraph is essentially enough to describe the problem. So maybe you could 
shorten that somehow.
