i.MX8MQ is different about system counter enablement, with this patch series,
no need to have system counter clock definition, this patch is just to enable the
system counter as broadcast timer, it is necessary for further support of cpu-idle,
to enable cpu-idle, another DT patch is needed to add idle node, but as far as I
know, Abel is working on the workaround of the i.MX8MQ cpu-idle, I don't know
if it is picked up or NOT, so I believe the cpu-idle will be enabled later for i.MX8MQ
by Abel.
