Agreed. I'll fix it in v3.

No. Here I save the initial CPU frequency so use one then to scale the
mips_hpt_frequency value in accordance with the CPU clock rate change. Yes,
mips_hpt_frequency value may initially match the CPU frequency on some platforms
but normally the r4k timer is clocked with half of it while some systems may have
a complicated algorithm of the timer ref clock rate calculation.
