writeq alwasy writes 64-bit anyway, but the deltas is just 32-bit
per the Linux clocksource API.

But the Linux API is only going to read 32-bits of that, same as
for the rdtime pseudo-instruction used by the current SBI-based code.

Note that I've reworked this area a bit for v4, which I'm going to
send out soon, including cleanups to the existing code to make a few
of these things more obvious:
