Bummer - this means VDK based off 4.9+ kernel might be affected with nsim GFRC issue !

No, the whole point of moving it out of arch/arc was to increase test coverage etc
so it was not tied to ISA_ARCV2 on purpose so that it would atleast build.

Lets see what Rudd has to say abt this. But GFRC can't be used this would need
fixing after all by introducing an additional ARC_PLAT_CANT_USE_TIMERS_64BIT which
is def_bool set to n, but selected y in VDK Kconfig.
