Do not use the ia64 clocksource on non-ia64 architectures
The HPET clocksource in drivers/char/hpet.c was written as generic code for ia64, but it is not yet ready to replace the native HPET clocksource implementations that the i386/x86-64 architectures use. On x86[-64], trying to register this clocksource results in potentially multiple hpet-based clocksources being registered, and if the ia64 one is chosen on x86_64 some users have experienced hangs. Eventually all three architectures may end up using the same code, but that is not the case right now.
