Coming at this form a different angle (ignoring feature flags etc), we
have by this point already been told by the device tree that a generic
timer is present (we panic if we don't find a node). So this check is a
bit redundant (I suppose it would catch people with an incorrect DT, but
I expect we'd figure that out pretty soon even without this check).

Perhaps we should just remove this check altogether? Or the suggestion
to #define it to 1 on arm64 would also work.
