Subject[patch 21/29] x86/hpet: Add function to select a /dev/hpet channel
If CONFIG_HPET=y is enabled the x86 specific HPET code should reserve at
least one channel for the /dev/hpet character device, so that not all
channels are absorbed for per CPU clockevent devices.

Create a function to assign HPET_MODE_DEVICE so the rework of the
clockevents allocation code can utilize the mode information instead of
reducing the number of evaluated channels by #ifdef hackery.

The function is not yet used, but provided as a separate patch for ease of
review. It will be used when the rework of the clockevent selection takes
place.
