So all mips_timer_ack users should implement its own clockevent
device, right?

$ git-grep mips_timer_ack arch/mips
arch/mips/dec/time.c:   mips_timer_ack = dec_timer_ack;
arch/mips/jmr3927/rbhma3100/setup.c:    mips_timer_ack = jmr3927_timer_ack;
arch/mips/philips/pnx8550/common/time.c:        mips_timer_ack = timer_ack;
arch/mips/sni/time.c:        mips_timer_ack = sni_a20r_timer_ack;
