Subject[RFC 1/6] arm64: hyperv: Allow hv_get_raw_timer() definition to be overridden
In order to support vDSO, hv_read_tsc_page() should be able to be called
from userspace if tsc page mapped. As a result, hv_get_raw_timer(),
called by hv_read_tsc_page() requires to be called by both kernel and
vDSO. Currently, it's defined as arch_timer_read_counter(), which is a
function pointer initialized (using a kernel address) by the arch timer
driver, therefore not usable in vDSO.

Fix this by allowing a previous definition to override the default one,
so that in vDSO code, we can define it as a function callable in
