This is the last part of patch set for core of ARM64 ACPI, and is based
on the patch set part2 "Using ACPI MADT table to initialise SMP and GIC".

ACPI GTDT (Generic Timer Description Table) is used for ARM/ARM64 only,
and contains the information for arch timer initialisation.

This patch trys to convert the arch timer to ACPI using GTDT. 

After this patch set was posted, we already finished the SMP, GIC and
arch timer initialisation, which all are essential for ARM64 core system
running, then we will focus on converting the device drivers to ACPI.

Here is the GTDT ASL code I used:
