Subject: [PATCH v14 08/10] ptp: arm64: Enable ptp_kvm for arm64

Currently, there is no mechanism to keep time sync between guest and host
in arm64 virtualization environment. Time in guest will drift compared
with host after boot up as they may both use third party time sources
to correct their time respectively. The time deviation will be in order
of milliseconds. But in some scenarios,like in cloud envirenment, we ask
for higher time precision.

kvm ptp clock, which choose the host clock source as a reference
clock to sync time between guest and host, has been adopted by x86
which makes the time sync order from milliseconds to nanoseconds.

This patch enables kvm ptp clock for arm64 and improve clock sync precison
significantly.

Test result comparisons between with kvm ptp clock and without it in arm64
are as follows. This test derived from the result of command 'chronyc
sources'. we should take more care of the last sample column which shows
the offset between the local clock and the source at the last measurement.

no kvm ptp in guest:

The dns1.synet.edu.cn is the network reference clock for guest and
120.25.115.20 is the network reference clock for host. we can't get the
clock error between guest and host directly, but a roughly estimated value
will be in order of hundreds of us to ms.

with kvm ptp in guest:
chrony has been disabled in host to remove the disturb by network clock.

The PHC0 is the ptp clock which choose the host clock as its source
clock. So we can see that the clock difference between host and guest
is in order of ns.
