Subject: [PATCH 0/8] counter: ti-eqep: implement features for speed measurement

Now that the counter subsystem has a new chrdev for events, we can use this to
add new features to the TI eQEP driver to be able to do accurate speed

This adds two new device-level components, a Unit Timer and an Edge Capture
Unit. I don't have much knowledge about other available counter hardware, so
I don't know if it makes sense to try to make these more generic, e.g.
counterX/timerY/* and counterX/captureY/*. For now, they are just flat
(counterX/unit_timer_* and counterX/edge_capture_unit_*) and assume there is
only one instance per counter device.

This has been tested on a BeagleBone Blue with LEGO MINDSTORMS motors.
