Again, Spreadtrum's two boards - SC9836/SC9860 - can run into console
without SPRD_TIMER, we can also debug some kernel origianl feature or
some basic drivers on these two boards, such as CoreSight, clock
driver, etc.

In my opinion we should keep the kernel as simple as possible, the
above information can go to the 'help' graph of SPRD_TIMER in its
Kconfig.

Thanks,
Chunyan
