Why is this a config option? I suspect that hardware that _needs_ this 
keep-warm periodic tick we should enable it unconditionally and 
automatically - otherwise the user can misconfigure the kernel with a 
bad clock.

You could make the functions inline and move the #ifdef into those 
functions.

That wold also remove those __maybe_unused tags.

Thanks,
