This is scary. CNTFRQ is only writable from secure mode, and will
explode in any other situation.

Also, writing to CNTFRQ doesn't change the timer frequency! This is just
a way for secure mode to tell the rest of the world the frequency the
timer is ticking at. Unless you've wired the input clock to be able to
change the frequency?
