clocksource: Provide a generic mult/shift factor calculation
MIPS has two functions to calculcate the mult/shift factors for clock sources and clock events at run time. ARM needs such functions as well. Implement a function which calculates the mult/shift factors based on the frequencies to which and from which is converted. The function also has a parameter to specify the minimum conversion range in seconds. This range is guaranteed not to produce a 64bit overflow when a value is multiplied with the calculated mult factor. The larger the conversion range the less becomes the conversion accuracy. Provide two inline wrappers which handle clock events and clock sources. For clock events the "from" frequency is nano seconds per second which corresponds to 1GHz and "to" is the device frequency. For clock sources "from" is the device frequency and "to" is nano seconds per second.
