We currently only have atcpit100 as clocksource but it is an IP of SoC.
These delay API will be unavailable if we changed to another SoC
unless all these timer driver provided the same APIs.
It may suffer our customers if they forget to port these APIs in their
timer drivers when they try to use nds32 in the first beginning.
Or maybe I can use a CONFIG_USE_ACCURATE_DELAY to keep these 2
implementions for these purposes?
