I guess this is for something like the ARM arch timer in
drivers/clocksource/arm_arch_timer.c

Instead of doing this, use the DT property "clock-frequency" on
the ARM arch timer node, as that overrides the CP15 setting.

Why is this not done properly in the GPT driver (I guess
in drivers/clocksource/mtk_timer.c) instead of remapping
it and fiddling around in the machine?

If it only affects the mt6589 just add another compatible string
to that driver like "mediatek,mt6589-timer" as it properly reflects the
fact that this timer is slightly different on the 6589.

Also use a #define for the magic constant 0x31.
