[RFC PATCH 09/23] x86/hpet: Reserve timer for the HPET hardlockup detector




HPET timer 2 will be used to drive the HPET-based hardlockup detector.
Reserve such timer to ensure it cannot be used by user space programs or
clock events.

When looking for MSI-capable timers for clock events, skip timer 2 if
the HPET hardlockup detector is selected.

Also, do not assign an IO APIC pin to timer 2 of the HPET. A subsequent
changeset will handle the interrupt setup of the timer used for the
hardlockup detector.
