Single rockchip timer can be either broadcast timer/clockevent (current implementation) or
clocksource (the one I’ve implemented in series). Both implementations based on
low level timer routines (rk_timer_disable, rk_timer_enable, rk_timer_update_counter, 
rk_timer_counter_read and so on). Both implementations use timers in different modes
(interrupts vs free running). In order to distinguish this concepts I tried to split
low level timer routines from bc_timer.

Otherwise I can place all needed clocksource filelds into 'struct bc_timer’ and rename 'struct bc_timer’
into 'struct rk_timer’. If this is more clear solution I can rewrite patches.

Alexander.
