Hello Alexandre,

In our tests, having failures under 64Hz is quite common in embedded
systems with few number of CPUs/Cores:

--------
root@bug3402:opt$ find /sys -name rtc0
/sys/devices/platform/9010000.pl031/rtc/rtc0
/sys/class/rtc/rtc0

selftests: timers: rtcpie
Periodic IRQ rate is 1Hz.
Counting 20 interrupts at:
2Hz: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
4Hz: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
8Hz: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
16Hz: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
32Hz: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
64Hz:
PIE delta error: 0.017697 should be close to 0.015625
not ok 1..9 selftests: timers: rtcpie [FAIL]
--------

Mainly because 64Hz gives us.. ~16ms in the test, and the variation
being taken in consideration for an error, for this test, is 10%, which
is ~1.6ms... pretty close to scheduler limit for lower number of CPUs in
a functional testing environment.

Would you mind if we change the default for up to 32Hz ? Or, do you have
any other suggestion ?

Best Rgds
Rafael
