Subject: [PATCH 2/2] clocksource: arm_arch_timer: Correct fault programming of CNTKCTL_EL1.EVNTI

ARM virtual counter supports event stream, it can only trigger an event
when the trigger bit (the value of CNTKCTL_EL1.EVNTI) of CNTVCT_EL0 changes,
so the actual period of event stream is 2^(cntkctl_evnti + 1). For example,
when the trigger bit is 0, then virtual counter trigger an event for every
two cycles.
