Now that the r4k timer is registered no matter what, bump the rating of
the Alchemy 32kHz timer so that it gets used when it is working,
and fall back on the r4k when it isn't.

This fixes a timer-related hang on platform with a working 32kHz timer
(the better rated c0 timer stops while executing 'wait' leading to (almost) 
eternal sleep) and an oops on boot on platforms without a working 32kHz timer
(due to double registration of the r4k timer).

For what is to become 3.8.

This is a quick fix; it's far less invasive than my preferred solution:
having each platform register the r4k clocksource explicitly.
It should be enough until Alchemy variants with speeds >= 1.3GHz appear
(which is very unlikely).
