These functions are duplicated with fttmr010_read_sched_clock_down() /
fttmr010_read_sched_clock_up().

Could you factor them out?

eg.

static inline unsigned long fttmr010_read_current_timer_up(void)
{
	return readl(local_fttmr->base + TIMER2_COUNT);
}

static inline unsigned long fttmr010_read_current_timer_down(void)
{
	return ~readl(local_fttmr->base + TIMER2_COUNT);
}

static u64 notrace fttmr010_read_sched_clock_down(void)
{
	return fttmr010_read_current_timer_down()
}

static u64 notrace fttmr010_read_sched_clock_up(void)
{
	return fttmr010_read_current_timer_up();
}

So we get rid of these CONFIG_ARM section above.
