I solved my problem, though I'm still a little unclear about the reasoning.
The solution was to enable these:
I also had to define get_c0_compare_int() to return the system timer
interrupt. Once I had done these things, start_kernel() calls time_init(),
which calls mips_clockevent_init() and init_mips_clocksource().
init_mips_clocksource() calls the init_r4k_clocksource() that was
enabled with the new config options. Now my system clock runs like I think it
I think I might not need the CEVT components... I'm going to look into that
next. But I wish there was some easy to find documentation about why this
code had to be moved into the arch/mips/cevt-*.c and arch/mips/csrc-*.c
