get_tsc_freq uses 'nanosleep' system call to calculate the CPU
frequency. However, 'nanosleep' results in the process getting
un-scheduled. The kernel saves and restores the PMU state. This
ensures that the PMU cycles are not counted towards a sleeping
process. When RTE_ARM_EAL_RDTSC_USE_PMU is defined, this results
in incorrect CPU frequency calculation. This logic is replaced
with generic counter based loop.

Bugzilla ID: 450
Fixes: f91bcbb2d9a6 ("eal/arm: use high-resolution cycle counter")

v2:
1) renamed functions (Jerin)
2) Aligned the frequency to 1MHz ceiling (Pavan)
3) Made all the inlines to always inline for consistency
