Subject: [PATCH v5 4/8] ARM: dts: rockchip: disable arm-global-timer for rk3188

clocksource and shed_clock provided by arm-global-timer is quite
unstable, because their rate depends on cpu frequency.
So disable arm-global-timer and use clocksource and sched_clock
from rockchip_timer.

It is impossible get stable clocksource having rockchip_timer and
arm-global-timer enabled at the same time. Because arm-global-timer
looks like a better candidate for the kernel: it has higher
frequency and rating.

Disabling arm-global-timer doesn't leave kernel without
clockevents as there is another clockevent provider (smp-twd).
