Maybe this is a legacy Kconfig option since Santosh got
the cpuidle coupled to switch things to using the always on
timers for idle modes years ago already.

Yeah it's already default y, so I'd say let's just get
rid of the option.

Sounds like we can just remove CONFIG_SOC_HAS_REALTIME_COUNTER
and rely on (SOC_OMAP5 || SOC_DRA7XX).
