Also, the code measuring latency seems all wrong. Debugging this looks
like a waste of time:
- we provide the latency test, which we hope is reasonably debugged, so
duplicating the effort is a waste of (our) time;
- from the code, I would guess the EPIT runs at 6 MHz, whereas the
cortex A9 has timers running at 400 or 500 MHz, which results in lower
latencies for accessing their registers.
