[PATCH v2 1/2] ARM: arch timer: Set the TVAL before timer is enabled

From: Rohit Vaswani
Date: Fri Sep 14 2012 - 18:29:27 EST

On some hardware, the timer deasserts the interrupt when a
new TVAL is written only when the enable bit is cleared.
Hence explicitly disable the timer and then program the
TVAL followed by enabling the timer.
If this order is not followed, there are chances that
you would not receive any timer interrupts.
