Subject: [PATCH v2 18/20] mips: csrc-r4k: Decrease r4k-clocksource rating if CPU_FREQ enabled

From: Serge Semin <Sergey.Semin@...kalelectronics.ru>

Commit 07d69579e7fe ("MIPS: Don't register r4k sched clock when
CPUFREQ enabled") disabled the r4k-clock usage for scheduler ticks
counting due to the scheduler being non-tolerant for unstable
clocks sources. For the same reason the clock should be used
in the system clocksource framework only as a last resort if CPU
frequency may change.
